Today is the ninth day “day”, do not forget the traditional taboo: seven do not go, eight do not return, on nine affairs


Before you know it, it has been two days since the start of the New Year.In a twinkling of an eye, it was the ninth day of the lunar New Year.For young people, especially those who work from 9 to 5, it must feel that the New Year is over in such a hurry.But in the folk, the atmosphere of the New Year is still strong.The ninth day of the Lunar New Year is the traditional “day of heaven”, commonly known as the day of heaven’s birthday, which means the birthday of the Jade Emperor.It is also one of the traditional Chinese lunar festivals.As we all know, in folk myths and legends, the Jade Emperor is the supreme commander of the three realms of heaven, Earth and Earth. He is in charge of all things in the world and has supreme power.Therefore, no matter in mythology or folk traditions, the Jade Emperor is highly respected and respected in people’s minds.Therefore, especially in ancient times, to the ninth day of the New Year, every family will prepare a variety of rich offerings to celebrate the birthday of the Jade Emperor, and different customs around the country, some celebration ceremony is not only grand, but also very lively.In folk proverbs spread such a sentence “seven do not go out, eight do not return, on nine affairs a lot of”, meaning that the ninth day of the Chinese New Year is a good day, the birthday of the Jade Emperor must be in a good mood, so also bless everyone to go out affairs are smooth.But the “seven not out, eight not back”, let’s clarify, does not mean that the seventh and eighth days do not go out;In fact, the real meaning is: seven not out: refers to the old saying that life opens the door to seven things, “wood, rice, oil, salt, sauce, vinegar, tea”;In ancient times, people who went out to do business were often the head of the family, so to speak, the backbone of the family.Therefore, if the seven things are not properly arranged before leaving the house, the old and the young will be guaranteed food and clothing. Therefore, it means that if the “wood, rice, oil, salt, sauce, vinegar and tea” in the house are not well arranged, they cannot go out.”No return” refers to the Confucian concepts of filial piety, fraternal respect, loyalty, faithfulness, courtesy, righteousness, integrity, and shame.Confucianism is one of the schools of thought in the pre-Qin period and also the mainstream of Chinese traditional culture.It is of great significance for the society to establish core values to seek long-term stability and good policies, and for us to build a harmonious society.Therefore, these eight characters also contain the eight virtues of life;The “eight not returning” of the old ancestor means that if a person violates any of the eight social virtues of propriety, righteousness, incorruptness, shame, loyalty, filial piety, trustworthiness and fraternization outside, he is dishonoring his ancestors and has no face to face with his family.Therefore, “ba bu GUI” is a kind of psychological warning to people who go out, and always restrain people not to do bad things.If you do not understand or disapprove of the people, certainly think that this is the ancient feudal customs, not worthy of praise.But one thing we should understand is that China’s 5,000-year civilization is extensive and profound, and every old saying handed down has its profound meaning.We should not only understand its superficial meaning, nor consider it just feudal superstition, but learn its real meaning, and deeply understand and practice.Taboo: especially for the older generation of people in the family, the ninth day of the lunar New Year is a very important day.They believe that the Jade Emperor is in charge of all things in the world, so they must not make the Jade Emperor angry on this day.Therefore, it is generally taboo to replace, washing clothes;In particular, the sun can be hung everywhere, otherwise the Jade Emperor will go down to the earth to inspect the people, which will affect the travel of the Jade Emperor and make the Jade Emperor angry.And implies that the coming year will not be smooth, etc.So on the ninth day of the Chinese New Year, we try to avoid washing and scrubbing.First, cake next in the Han people, especially in the south, the ninth day of the Chinese New Year pay attention to eat cake next food, the so-called cake next food is made of glutinous rice.It’s like mochi, sweet and soft, and a Q bomb.With good luck, such as good implication.1, prepare 150g glutinous rice flour, 50g corn starch, 500g water directly mix, stir until no particles of liquid.Soak dried mushroom in advance and wash it, chop it;Prepare some dried shrimps to chop;2.
