When the New Year begins, people like to stick to the Spring Festival couplets, beat the drums and make the lanterns. There was a festive glow on every face.
Why should Chinese New Year be affixed to couplet, setting off firecrackers and hanging lanterns? Here's another wonderful fairy tale. Once upon a time there was a monster called nian, who lived in a secluded valley. The monster was fierce and terrible. He was very clever, and he knew that there were more than thirty people in the great year, and so many kinds of wild animals, so that every night he was thirty, he would run into the village and eat and eat and eat and eat. The people hated him, but they were afraid of him, and they were helpless. So they can only close the doors and Windows every 30 years.
But this monster can still come in. It's another year of the year, and people close the doors and Windows early. At this time, a man from the field came to the village, and saw that all the families were close, and felt very strange. Think: big day why not a person? He went to a door and knocked at the door. An old man asked, "who is it?" "I am a stranger and want to spend the night." "Said the stranger.
The old man asked the stranger to come into the house and tell the stranger what happened to the beast. The stranger laughed and said, "I know what nian is afraid of. I have a way to fix it." The old man listened and said happily, "you know! That's great. I'll call the villagers. Tell them about it." Said the village villagers all came. "Nian is afraid of three things: red, fire and noise," said the stranger. Some said, "I hurried home to find some red paper to stick to the door." Some said, "I'll go home and burn the fire." At night, nien came again, he sees every family with red paper, and the burning fire in the courtyard, frighten mess and flee, and because one family bamboo crack in the fire, that nian was scared, he fled back to the valley. Nian was starved to death because he had not eaten anything. Since then, people have lived a happy life.
So far, the custom of setting off firecrackers, pasting Spring Festival couplets and beating drums and drums has been passed down to become the traditional culture of our country's Spring Festival.
In our country, every household in China is going to celebrate the Spring Festival.
On the eve of the Spring Festival, my mother took me to the market to buy New Year goods. There are a lot of people in the market. Mother and I have bought a lot of New Year's goods including melon seeds, peanuts, chickens, ducks, fish, meat, ham, coke and all kinds of famous tobacco brands. We also bought a lot of fireworks. Ha-ha, we are happy. When the mother swept the floor, the father wiped the ground, the elder brother hurriedly affixed the spring couplet. The Spring Festival couplets are written to congratulate you on your fortune and good luck. The sister put up the window flowers. My mother even brushed the walls white for the Spring Festival. The grandfather came up and said, "let's celebrate this year." Then mother went to buy us red clothes, red clothes for auspicious red fire.
Listen to grandma said: "the ancient times have a monster" year "often come out in Spring Festival do strange, destroy the manor, return to eat children! But" year "is not what all not afraid. It is said that" nian "3 be afraid, afraid, afraid of cannon fire, afraid." So in the Spring Festival, you must shoot and wear red clothes.
On the day of Spring Festival, we happily wear beautiful red clothes. Shoot, eat reunion dinner, together round the big year.
There are many traditional cultures. I like Spring Festival best.
Legend has it that once upon a time there was a monster called nian who often went to the village to harm people and ate cattle and sheep. So, people want to get rid of it. However, no matter what method people use, can't drive away "year". Finally, a child accidentally lit a bamboo, a crackling sound, "nian" was scared away. People are happy. Later, people set off firecrackers on this day in order to commemorate this happy day. Later, it gradually evolved into the "Spring Festival" festival.
I go back to my hometown every year. It's very busy every year. The day before the Spring Festival, it is 30 years old, also called New Year's eve. Every household is affixed with the Spring Festival couplets, labeled "fu". Some people, in the spirit of the heart, put their own window flowers on the window, like falling snow. Others hang lanterns on the front door, and the lanterns are colorful and very beautiful.
This evening, the sound of the sound of the cannon, like thunder, this one, one after another. Li hua red the whole sky, like a beautiful flower. After the firecracker was finished, people picked up the delicious dumplings and ate the reunion dinner. The children are also reunited with their parents. People eat hot dumplings and watch the wonderful Spring Festival gala, until midnight, and the New Year's bell rings. The next morning people get up very early, whether adult children or adults are breathing new clothes and going door to door. Everyone has a smile on their faces and an auspicious word in their mouth.
The mood of joy lasted until the 15th day of the first lunar month.
