My hometown is in the countryside.As soon as the twelfth lunar month arrives, the atmosphere of the New Year thickens.In the village of the supply and marketing agency, people buying New Year’s goods in an endless stream.Those traditional New Year pictures left a deep impression on me, now think of it is still beautiful, the thick paper, emitting the fragrance of ink, in the young mind, has taken it as a symbol of the year.Laba in the north is the coldest time of the year.Its special significance lies in that it is one step closer to the New Year.Every day before dawn will wake up, at the thought of the New Year, excited to sleep.The old people in the village began to say to the children: “Don’t you slander, children, after the Laba will be the New Year.Don’t cry, you will kill pigs after laba.”The children ran away, laughing and cheering.At that time, not all families could afford to kill adult pigs.And the family that killed a pig all want to arrange a meal, entertain a village neighbor close wei.We these children eat not much meat, is a diagram of a lively house, the house of the scurrying.That year food is very poor, usually is corn flour cake, small rice, even pasta also can not eat.So Chinese New Year is a good chance for us children to satisfy our cravings.In the days before New Year’s Eve, my mother was busy steaming subjects like rice cakes and steamed buns — and, the day before, using a cauldron of subjects like meat.I was standing on the edge of the pot, staring at the pot closely, smelling the fragrance that floated out, I do not know that saliva has been flowing down.My mother would lift the lid of the pot and put a small piece of meat in the bowl with chopsticks.
