On the seventh day of the first lunar month, it is said that this day is the birthday of human beings, that is, people's birthdays. The folks once called this day "Human Day", "Human Day Festival" or "Human Victory Festival". In addition to a lot of stress on this day, there are also many taboos. Taking advantage of the seventh day of the first lunar month today, the editor wants to share about "Human Day" today.
The ancients believed in the interaction between heaven and man, and took the seventh day after the year as the human day, that is, the seventh day of the first lunar month. Han Dongfangshuo's "Zhanshu" records that the first day of the first lunar month is a chicken, the second is a dog, the third is a pig, the fourth is a sheep, the fifth is a cow, the sixth is a horse, the seventh is a man, and the eighth is a grain. After the Han and Wei dynasties, Human Day gradually developed from a single divination activity to a festival that included celebrations, sacrifices and other activities. In the Tang Dynasty, the Chinese people still attached great importance to the People's Day. In Gao Shi's poem "Ren Ri Ji Du Er Supplements", there is a sentimental sentence "This year people will remember each other in the sky, and next year people will know where they are". It proves that the Man's Day in the Tang Dynasty was not only dedicated to praying for good luck and peace, but also added an atmosphere of missing relatives and friends. Even today, there are also wanderers who go home before the year, and they can only go far away after the festival. On Human's Day, we don't travel far away, don't visit relatives and friends, and reunite at home. Long noodles, also called lahun noodles, are usually eaten in the afternoon on Human Day. It means that during the Chinese New Year, people are wandering around, their hearts are wild, and it is time to prepare for spring plowing and production after the day is over. So eat ramen noodles, take your heart back, and prepare for spring farming.
