March Qingming, spring back to the earth, the natural world everywhere presents a vibrant scene, it is a good time for outings. At this time, going out for an outing can better get close to nature, and can make use of the earth's atmosphere after awakening and the vigorous prosperous wood aura to prosper their own fortune.
Flying kites is a favorite activity during the Qingming Festival, and the history of kites is very long. It is said that the first kite in the world was made of wood by Lu Ban, a famous craftsman in the Spring and Autumn period, and there were also kites made of bamboo at that time. Paper kites appeared in the Han Dynasty, called "kite". Since the Tang Dynasty, kites have become increasingly popular as children's toys.
Gao Ding, a poet in Qing Dynasty, once described the scene of flying kites like this: "Grass grows and warblers fly in February, willows whisk on the embankment and spring smoke is drunk. Children return early from school and are busy flying kites in the east wind." People added a bamboo flute to the kite. When the kite flew up, it was blown by the wind and made a "whine" sound, like the playing of a zither. Therefore, people changed the kite to "kite". The most famous kite event in contemporary China is the "International Kite Festival" in Weifang, Shandong. Since 1984, the Ching Ming Festival has been held every year, and Weifang is therefore known as the "Kite Capital of the World".
In the early days, it was called "hook" and "hook strength", and in the Tang Dynasty, it was called "tug-of-war". It was invented in the late Spring and Autumn period, began to prevail in the army, and later spread in the folk. Tang Xuanzong once held a large-scale tug-of-war competition during the Qingming Festival. From then on, tug-of-war became part of the Qingming custom.
Qingming Festival is the time for willows to sprout and pull green. Folk has the custom of folding willows, wearing willows and inserting willows. When people go hiking, they fold off a few wicker sticks and play with them in their hands. They can also be made into hats and worn on their heads. They can also be taken home and inserted on the lintel and eaves.
It is said that the custom of planting willows is related to avoiding epidemic diseases. The Tang believed that wearing willow branches on the head could get rid of poisonous insects when offering sacrifices by the river. After the Song and Yuan Dynasties, when people returned from a outing, they often planted willows at their doorsteps to avoid pests and epidemics. This is because the climate warms in spring and various germs begin to multiply. People can only hope to insert willows to avoid epidemics when medical conditions are poor. Willow branches planted under the eaves can also forecast the weather. The old proverb goes: "Wicker is green and rainy; Wicker is dry and sunny.
In the face of the pneumonia epidemic caused by the new coronavirus infection, many people choose to be brave and "retrograde". They are not afraid of risks and resolutely stick to the front line of prevention and control! They face up to the difficulties and fulfill their mission with practical actions. It is because of these retrograders that we can defeat the epidemic! There is no good time to be quiet, but someone is carrying your weight!
