The Spring Festival, the most important festival of our Chinese nation, heralds the coming of a New Year, and all the families are beaming with joy. On New Year's eve, the sound of firecrackers rang through the sky, and people sang and danced, a scene of hot and hot air.
Although the Spring Festival is busy, do you know how Spring Festival comes? Once upon a time, there was a monster named nian, who often bullied people in the mountains in winter. Some wanted to get rid of it, and some wanted to get rid of it. One day, nian came again, and many people were attacked at home. Only a few doors hung with red curtains, and no one was hurt by the fire or knocking at the door, so people in the mountain knew about the three things. When the year came, people used these three things to drive away the monster, and they never dared to hurt people. From generation to generation, the custom of Chinese New Year is formed.
I like the Spring Festival, because some of the delicious popcorn and good drinks, and other kinds of toys.
In recent years, with the strong, our nation's leaders also began at the time of the Spring Festival, speeches or articles to the festive greetings to the Chinese in their home country, the Chinese New Year is becoming more and more influential in the world.
The history of the Spring Festival is very long. Legend has it that there was the custom of "Spring Festival" in the neolithic period. There is a legend about the origin of "Spring Festival" : there was an animal called nian in ancient China. "Year", the head long antenna, fierce abnormality. "Nian" lived at the bottom of the sea for a long time, and every day on a certain day (it was New Year's eve), he climbed ashore and devoured livestock and killed people. Therefore, every New Year's eve, the people of the village of the village of the village of the village to help young people to escape the "year" of harm.
On the New Year's eve, an old beggar came from the village. Village a hurried panic scene, nobody answered him, only village east an old woman gave the old man some food, and urged him quickly up the hill avoid "year", the old man beard snatched up say with smile: "mother-in-law if let me stay overnight in the home, I'll get 'years' away." The old woman continued to persuade, begging the old man smiling without a word.
In the middle of the night, "nian" broke into the village. It found that the atmosphere in the village was different from previous years: the wife of the village dongtou, the door was covered with red paper, the candle in the house was bright. "Nian" shuddered, a strange cry. Near the door, there was a sudden "crackling", "nian" shuddering, and dared not to move forward. Originally, "nian" was most afraid of the red, the fire and the explosion. At this time, the door of the mother-in-law opened, and a man in red robe in the hospital laughed. "Nian" paled with surprise, and fled. The next day was the first day of the first month, and people who came back to the village were surprised to see the village safe and sound. At this moment, the old woman suddenly understood, and hurried to tell the villagers the promise of begging the old man. It quickly spread around the village, and people knew how to get rid of the year.
From now on, every year on New Year's eve, every house red couplet, set off firecrackers; Householder candle fire is clear, shoule to be old. Early in the early morning, I would like to walk a friend to say hello. This custom has been widely circulated, becoming the most solemn traditional festival of Chinese folk.
People are happy when the Spring Festival comes, but do you know the origin of Spring Festival? If you don't know, just listen to me.
Legend has it that in the ancient times, there was a vicious monster, a large body, a horn with horns, and a big mouth. This monster is called nian.
At that time, there were two children, ashan and water. They were good friends. They were very brave. They often drove their cattle to the hillside to eat grass. The family said to them: "there is a year in the mountains.
"Not afraid." Ashan and water have their own minds.
That said, they went up a couple of times, but luckily they didn't touch nian. The weather turned yellow. Ah shan, water drive the cattle to come home with a monster. That was the year. The whip made a noise from the mountain, and the year, when he heard the torsion, he saw the red clothes on the water run faster.
Ah shan, ah water sees this all clear, return to the village, they say to others: year afraid of red afraid to ring, these are its weak points. We don't have to worry about it.
From then on, people wear red clothes on the twelfth lunar month, some firecrackers, and this time is called "New Year".
The Chinese New Year is now popularly known as the Spring Festival because it starts from the Begining of Spring (the first of the twenty-four terms in coodination with the changes of Nature). Its origin is too old to be traced. Several explanations are hanging around. All agree, however, that the word Nian, which in modern Chinese solely means year, was originally the name of a monster beast that started to prey on people the night before the beginning of a new year.
One legend goes that the beast Nian had a very big mouth that would swallow a great many people with one bite. People were very scared. One day, an old man came to their rescue, offering to subdue Nian. To Nian he said, I hear say that you are very capable, but can you swallow the other beasts of prey on earth instead of people who are by no means of your worthy opponents? So, it did swallow many of the beasts of prey on earth that also harrassed people and their domestic animals from time to time. examda.com
After that, the old man disappeared riding the beast Nian. He turned out to be an immortal god. Now that Nian is gone and other beasts of prey are also scared into forests, people begin to enjoy their peaceful life. Before the old man left, he had told people to put up red paper decorations on their windows and doors at each year's end to scare away Nian in case it sneaked back again, because red is the color the beast feared the most.
