In ancient times, small towns in the south of the Yangtze River used to have a saying that "100 families make up an urban subdivision, and 10,000 households a city". Urban subdivision was a residential unit of Wuzhen. At the same time, it was home to a special social group of Wuzhen people. On weekdays, people went to neighborhoods to talk with each other. On New Year's Day, rich families always held banquets in these areas to invite friends and visitors from neighborhoods for enjoying the New Year's happiness together, and neighbors also place their tables and chairs along the streets.
