The snow melted, the sun shined brightly but the weather was still cold .
Today was a good day .
And today was going to be new house roof setting feast
This was the custom of building houses in the countryside .
Friends, relatives, neighbors would be present to congratulate .
After the beams were placed on the roof, the firecrackers would be set off with sugar candy .
Whether it was children or adults, all would rush to get it .
Originally, Ye Xiaochen didn’t plan to make it big, just family relatives, few friends, and some villagers, which would be no more than ten tables .
Today happened to be Sunday, many young people would go for temporary work .
A lot of family relatives were also outside .
However, who thought that this time’s feast, all the family relatives said they would come to participate .
Ye Xiaochen naturally couldn’t deny them, so it became a big party, at most he would get a little busy .
Adding family relatives and villagers, it would be more than thirty tables .
Ye family had a lot of relatives, there were five brothers and three sisters on father’s side, while the mother’s side had a little less, there were still three brothers and two sisters .
This was only the closest relatives, there were also other relatives, such as his father’s cousin!
It was the same with her mother .
Even his aunt’s husband and their children were also coming .
This would add more than thirty tables .
The list doesn’t finish here, as Ye Xiaochen’s some business partners would be also attending .
Although he didn’t invite them, he doesn’t know where they got the news . They congratulated him and said they would definitely be coming on the day of the feast .
So, now it was around 35 tables .
For the safe side, it was better to prepare 40 tables . If there were too many people and not enough food, won’t it become a joke?
Ye Xiaochen was speechless . Isn’t this just an ordinary feast? Is it necessary to make it so lively?
Ye Xiaochen had no choice but to become busy .
In fact, he doesn’t have to do anything .
Because the feast has been outsourced .
At nine o’clock the guest started coming .
Ye Ying carried a bag and was receiving red envelopes .
When you receive a red envelope, you have to return a red envelope .
This time’s returning red envelope amount was ordinary, around ten to twenty yuan .
As there were so many people, his sister rarely stopped .
As time went on, Ye Xiaochen’s business partners started coming in their cars .
Ye Xiaochen had to go up and receive them in person .
Li Jiaren, Liu Fusheng, Xu Jiao, Master Lin and others .
There were also some leaders of counties and cities .
Wang Shusiheng’s family also came .
Fang Yuan and Huang Qiqi were also present .
Even many people from the institute came .
He doesn’t know how they got the news .
Zeng Hongye sent a secretary .
It was eleven o clock, the inside and outside house were bustling with people, and the total number of tables were more than 35 .
On the eave of the new house, a sealed firecracker was hung, after ignition, a loud explosion suddenly sounded .
All the voices were covered by the sound of the firecrackers .
Shortly, different kinds of sugar candy fell from the roof like rain .
A lot of people rushed to take it .
The scene was very lively .
At noon, inside and outside of the new house was filled with tables and chairs, the tables were present even in the old house .
Thirty-eight tables .
This was definitely a large scale feast .
It was lively until three o’clock, after that the guest started leaving . Ye Xiaochen saw off the last group of guests .
Only some close relatives were there at home .
Wang Xinyi also went back with Wang Shuisheng .
“Xioachen, come and have a drink with us . ”
“Xiaochen, now you are a big celebratory, the pride of our Ye family . Brother toasts to you . “
“Let’s have a good drink today . Until you get drunk, we won’t go back . ”
At the wine table, Ye Xiaochen’s various cousins were there, most of them were married .
It was hard to meet them together like today .
“All right, let’s drink . ”
Ye Xiaochen sat down on the chair with a smile .
After an hour later, Ye Xiaochen finished the last glass of wine, he saw that nobody could stand up, and smiled .
Really an invincible drinker!
The noises were gone .
All the tables and chairs have been removed .
The floor was swept clean .
Ye Xiacohen’s family was registering and counting red envelopes .
Ye Ying was holding a pen and a notebook and carefully noted down the gift money .
Now, people eating at a feast would generally give 100 yuan, if they have good relations, they might give 200 yuan, if it was a family relative, then three to four hundred yuan was normal .
“Wow, there’s a lot!”
Ye Ying opened a big red envelope, there was a full stack of notes, it was around 5000 yuan .
The business partners gave a lot .
The next few red envelopes contained three to five thousand yuan .
The highest one was of Wang Shuisheng, which had 10,000 yuan .
It took a few hours to calculate and register all the red envelopes .
Adding all the gift money, it reached around 100,000 yuan .
It doesn’t seem like much, but actually, it was a lot .
Under normal circumstances, in Ye Xiaochen’s family feast it was already good to reach the gift money 8000-9000 yuan .
Now it was ten times .
Of course, 100,000 yuan was not much for the current Ye Xiaochen .
Now that the immortal spring restaurant branch has been opened in Yang city, his monthly dividend has increased a lot, it was not a problem to earn seven to eight million per month .
“Son, so many people came to the feast, many of them are your friends, so you have to give them a gift . Your father and I will take care of our relatives and villagers . ”
Mother reminded him .
She was afraid that his son would forget and lose the courtesy .
Courtesy calls for reciprocity . Now that someone has attended his feast, it was natural that he should attend any happy event later when that person hosts .
“Mother, don’t worry, I’ll remember it . ”
Ye Xiaochen nodded .
In the past, due to a lack of friends, he would rarely attend any banquets .
He really needs to pay attention to this aspect .
“Brother, here are all the records of your friend’s money, take it . ”
Ye Ying handed Ye Xiaochen a notebook .
Ye Xiaochen nodded and took the notebook, he saw that father and mother went to sleep, then suddenly he smiled and said, “Didn’t Guo Moyun also give a red envelope, why didn’t you write it down?”
Ye Ying blushed and said, “What is there to write, any way you don’t need to care about it . ”
“All right, I won’t care about it . ”
Ye Xiaochen laughed .
“Here is the money . ”
Ye Ying handed the paper bag with money to Ye Xiaochen .
“You take and use it . ”
Ye Xiaochen waved his hand and walked out with the notebook .
When Ye Ying saw the paper bag in her hand, she was stunned for a moment, and then she put it in her bag .
