Taking advantage of the Mid-Autumn Festival reunion festival, today I will show you a wave of traditional activities on the Mid-Autumn Festival!
Mid-autumn festival traditional activities:
1. Watching the Tide:
In addition to the Mid-Autumn Festival in the ancient Zhejiang area, there is also a major Mid-Autumn Festival event that is watching the waves! In fact, the Mid-Autumn Festival tidal wave viewing has been described in detail in the Han Dynasty's "Seven Hairs" Fu. And after the Han Dynasty, the tide of the Mid-Autumn Festival was more prosperous. Records of watching the tide are also found in Zhu Tinghuan's "Adding Wulin Old Things" and Song Wu Zimu's "Meng Lianglu".
2. Burning lamp:
Mid-autumn night there is a custom to light the moon to help the moonlight. At present, in Huguang area, there is still the custom of burning lamps with towers stacked on the tower. In the Jiangnan area, there are customs of making light boats. The custom of lighting lanterns in Mid-Autumn Festival has become more prosperous in some places in modern times. Today ’s Zhou Yunjin and He Xiangfei ’s article “Experimental Seasonal Events in Leisure Time” states: “Guangdong ’s Zhangdeng is the most prosperous, and each family used bamboo sticks to lanterns more than ten days before the holiday. Make fruits, birds, beasts, fish and insects. And "Celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival", and then paste colored paper to paint various colors. Mid-autumn night lanterns, internal combustion candles, are tied to bamboo poles, erected on tile eaves or on the terrace, or formed into small or various shapes with small lamps. Hanging high above the house, commonly known as 'Tree Mid-Autumn Festival' or 'Vertical Mid-Autumn Festival'. The lamps hanging in the wealthy home are countless tall, and the family gathers under the lamps to drink and enjoy, while ordinary people erected two flagpoles and lanterns. It ’s also fun. The city is full of lights and lights. ”It seems that the scale of the Mid-Autumn Festival has been second only to the Lantern Festival.
3. Guess the riddle:
Many lanterns are hung in public places on the Mid-Autumn Festival, and people gather to guess the riddles written on the lanterns. This activity is a favorite activity of most young men and women, and there are love stories in these activities. Lantern riddles have also spawned a form of love between men and women.
4. Eat moon cakes:
Mid-Autumn Festival Moon-watching and moon-cake eating are essential customs for Mid-Autumn Festival throughout China. As the saying goes: "August 15 is full, and Mid-Autumn Festival moon cakes are sweet and sweet." The word mooncake originated from Wu Zhemu's "Menglianglu" in the Southern Song Dynasty, which was just a snack food. Later, people gradually combined the moon appreciation with moon cakes to imply family reunions and pin their thoughts on them. At the same time, moon cakes are also an important gift for friends to connect with each other during the Mid-Autumn Festival. In the Xiamen area of Fujian, there is also the custom of blogs, and blogs are listed as national intangible cultural heritage projects.
5. Reward osmanthus and drink osmanthus wine:
People often eat moon cakes to appreciate osmanthus during the Mid-Autumn Festival, and various foods made from osmanthus are most commonly seen as cakes and sweets. On the night of the Mid-Autumn Festival, looking up at Dangui in the middle of the moon, smelling a burst of cinnamon and drinking a glass of sweet-scented osmanthus honey, celebrating the sweetness of the family has become a beautiful enjoyment of the festival. In modern times, people use red wine instead.
6, play lantern:
The Mid-Autumn Festival does not have a large lantern festival like the Lantern Festival, and the lanterns are played mainly between families and children. As early as recorded in the Mid-Autumn Festival in the "Wulin Old Things" of the Northern Song Dynasty, there was an activity of "putting a little red" light into the river for fun. Mid-autumn festival lanterns are mostly concentrated in the south. For example, at the Autumn Fair in Foshan, there are all kinds of colored lights: sesame lights, egg shell lights, shaving lights, straw lights, fish scale lights, chaff lights, melon seed lights and bird and beast flower tree lights.
7. Burning tower:
The game of burning tile lamps (or burning flower tower, burning tile tower, and burning pan tower) is widely spread in the south. For example, in the Book of the Nationwide Customs Vol. 5: Mid-autumn night in Jiangxi, children usually pick up tiles in the wild and pile them into a round tower with holes. It was burned in a firewood tower under the moon at dusk.
