January 25 is the 23rd day of the 12th month in the Chinese lunar calendar, which is traditionally known as the Little New Year.Lanzhou has many traditional customs about the Spring Festival, but with the development of The Times, many old customs are gradually forgotten.Today, what old customs are still retained, the reporter takes you to take a look at the countryside of the North mountain in Yuzhong.What are the old customs of Spring Festival in the northern mountainous area of Yuzhong?”I remember after the Laba festival, basically every day there are sayings.Before New Year’s Eve, the most solemn day should be the 23rd day of the 12th lunar month to ‘sacrifice the kitchen’, the New Year again and again.”Living in Yuzhong county on the fork fork township ring cliff society over eighty years old Wei old man about the old customs of the Chinese New Year is still fresh.In the past, his fathers had to clean the dust in every room of the house on this day. On the 25th, 26th and 27th days of the twelfth lunar month, they had corresponding tasks to do, such as killing pigs, steaming steamed buns and buying Spring Festival goods.The 29th day of the twelfth lunar month or the 30th day of the Lunar New Year is the most important day for ancestor worship. All the men in the family go to their ancestral graves to worship their ancestors.”Every year, children are required to return home before the New Year’s Eve because they have to worship their ancestors.”Mr. Wei said.Ancestor worship is a very important day, but also the most can not be ignored in the Chinese New Year customs.”In my opinion, ancestor worship is not only a sacrifice to the ancestors, but also a way to show the younger generation’s respect for their elders.”So, every year at this time, he requires his migrant children to return home before the 29th day of the 12th lunar month, and then the fathers of the family take the men to the ancestral graves to worship the ancestors.”My hometown has a particular, is every New Year’s Eve this day, early in the morning to start cooking.Family after dinner began to paste Spring Festival couplets, and then go to the ancestral graves, if the family Spring Festival couplets have been posted, people who work outside can not go home again!”Mr. Wei said, some traditional things have become a habit of the New Year, do not do so, feel something missing.During the Spring Festival, the old people in some villages in The North mountain of Yuzhong said that they could not adhere to all the old customs. On the one hand, they could not remember all the old customs. On the other hand, after all, The Times were developing.But there are certain small details that they will not give up, because in their eyes, only in this way can the flavor of the New Year be stronger.Bai, 75, said her family still does not sew on the first day of the Lunar New Year, eats pig bones for dinner on New Year’s Eve, and eats dumplings on the first day.”Not moving a needle and thread in the first month means’ not moving a sword. ‘I hope the family can live in harmony and there will be no disputes.Eating dumplings on the first day of the New Year symbolizes the reunion of the whole family.”Bai’s mother said that in the last month of the year, her wife would take out all the clothes at home to see if there were any buttons to be mended and finish sewing in advance.Zhang Zhengjia, 84, of Bailu Community, Bailu Village of Shanghuancha Township, is very particular about the customs of Chinese New Year.On New Year’s Eve, he would turn on all the lights in his house until dawn, and stick to it until the third day of the New Year, implying a bright New Year for the whole family.Many old people say that with the development of The Times, now some old customs are no longer so adhere to, but the traditional Chinese New Year customs still represent a kind of cultural inheritance, I hope the young generation will not easily abandon those carrying good memories of the “old habits”.Lanzhou Daily all media reporter Teng Xiaohong statement: reprint this article is for the purpose of passing more information.If the source is wrong or violated your legitimate rights and interests, please contact the author with proof of ownership, we will promptly correct, delete, thank you.Email address: newmedia@xxcb.cn
