ABSTRACT

Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area is an important space carrier for the country to build a world-class city group and participate in global competition. It is an important measure to promote the formation of a new pattern of comprehensive opening up in the new era. With the rapid development of the Greater Bay Area, the three places will inevitably encounter many problems in the process of integration and development, and cultural identity is an important one of them. From the perspective of the overall structure, Guangdong, Hong Kong, and Macao are all dominated by Lingnan culture. The three places belong to the Lingnan cultural circle. There must be many similarities in terms of lifestyle, festivals and customs, as well as folk belief culture. The Beidi belief is one of the most representative folk beliefs in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. How to correctly understand and develop this common culture is of great strategic significance for enhancing the cultural identity of the three places and promoting the integration and development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.

Held on the sixth day of April in the lunar calendar and the eighth day of the parade in April, the entire Jianye period lasted for five days, and there were rituals such as "welcoming gods", "walking the noon dynasty", "super secluded" and "giving gods". Among them, the floating color scene parade, the lion and Xiangqi show, and Baoshan grabbing are the most popular. In addition, during this period, residents of the island were vegetarian, and tourists could not find a restaurant selling amaranth or seafood.
