According to Chinese traditions, 11th Lunar January is Son-in-law Day. In the ancient times, married women couldn't go back to their parents' as often as they wanted. So usually on the 2nd Lunar January, they would go back to their parents' with their husbands with gifts. Chinese people believe that courtesy calls for reciprocity. So on the 11th, parents of married women would invite their sons-in-law in return.

11th Lunar January is also the day to memorize Zigu. It is said that Zigu was the concubine of a rich man. The wife of the man was jealous of her so she killed Zigu in the bathroom. The God pitied her so helped her become bathroom goddess. Since then people memorize her every year on the 11th Lunar January and wish she would help vulnerable women group.
