Welcome new year's day, happy New Year's Day


The origin of new year's Day

1.China's new year's day began in Zhuanxiang, one of the three emperors and five emperors. It has a history of more than 5000 years.

2.In the prosperous age of Yao and Shun in ancient times more than 4000 years ago, when Yao was in office, he worked hard for the people and did a lot of good things for the people, which was very loved by the people. However, because his son had no talent and was not very successful, he did not pass on the leader of the "tribal alliance" to his son, but to shun, who had both moral character and talent. Yao said to shun, "you must pass on the throne in the future. You can rest in peace after I die." Later, Shun passed the throne to Yu, who had made great contributions to the flood control. Like Shun, Yu was also close to the people and loved the people. He did a lot of good things for the people and was very loved. Later, people regarded the day when Emperor Shun offered sacrifices to heaven and earth and the former Emperor Yao after Yao's death as the beginning of the year, and called the first day of the first month of the lunar calendar "New Year's Day" or "New Year's Day". It is said that this is the origin of the ancient "New Year's Day".

The custom of new year's Day

set off firecrackers

When it comes to setting off firecrackers in the new year, many people now know that it is to scare away a monster called Nian. In fact, if we go deep into it, there are many different views on the image of this "Nian beast". In the Han Dynasty, when people got up together on New Year's day, they set off firecrackers in the yard in order to scare away a ghost called "shansao". In the legend of the Han Dynasty, this kind of ghost lived in the deep mountains in the West. It was about a foot high. People would be infected by it. One weakness of such ghosts is that they are afraid of the sound of firecrackers, so people set off firecrackers on New Year's day. In order to scare away such ghosts, it is also a wish not to get sick in the coming year.

Eat rice cakes

Also known as sticky cake, it means high every year. It is made of glutinous rice in the south, New Year cake and sticky millet in the north. Rice cakes have a long history. Rice cakes in the Han Dynasty have names such as "rice cake", "cake", "bait" and "Ci". The twelfth volume of qingjialu, written by Gu Lu of the Qing Dynasty, is more detailed. It says that millet powder and sugar are used as cakes, which are called "New Year cakes", which are different from yellow and white. The big one foot square is "Fangtou cake", and the "cake ingot" like Yuanbao is used for giving gifts to relatives and friends on New Year's Eve. In addition, there are slender "strip head cake" and wide "strip half cake". During the festival, rich families hire people to make cakes. Ordinary people can buy them in cake shops.

It is known all over China and even the world that new year's Day is a legal holiday in many countries. After the founding of new China, it was also stipulated that new year's Day was a legal holiday.
