The 15th day of the first month of the lunar calendar is the traditional Chinese festival, the Lantern Festival. The first month is the first month of the year. The ancients called the night Xiao, and the 15th is the first full moon night of the year. Therefore, the 15th day of the first month is called the Lantern Festival, also known as the Shangyuan Festival. According to our folk tradition, on the festival night of Spring Festival, the moon is high in the sky and there are thousands of lanterns on the ground. People watch the lanterns and guess the riddles. Eating Tangyuan symbolizes family reunion like the moon, and it also places peoples good wishes for future life.
It is said that a long time ago, people lived and worked in peace and contentment with good weather and good crops. Suddenly, the disaster came, the city was flooded, and the fields outside the city were dry. It was the Queens mother who invited the Jade Emperor to a banquet. The Jade Emperor was drunk and went back to the palace to do business. So he wrote the rain Book wrong. It should have been five minutes of rain outside the city, three minutes of rain inside the city, and the Jade Emperor wrote the opposite. The green dragon knew the reason, then secretly slipped to the heaven palace, changed the rain book, so that the world slowly recovered. When the Jade Emperor woke up, he also found that he had written the wrong rain book, but he wanted to correct it, and he was afraid that the important officials said he was not careful about his work, so he had to correct it. Later, the Jade Emperor found that his rain book had been changed. He was furious and sent the prime minister to kill the green dragon. After being killed by the prime minister, Qinglong becomes a bird of God. He shouts injustice outside the Jade Emperors palace. The Jade Emperor feels ashamed, so he asks the Yellow Emperor to send an order to the people to commemorate Qinglong, who was killed for the people. Every Spring Festival, people will play gongs and drums, play dragon and lion dance for several years, and celebrate the Lantern Festival. www.zuowenla.cn
