Farming proverb goes: “Spring hit sixty-nine”, and this year’s Beginning Day, just “fifty-nine,” the ninth day, which in turn should be a howling wind in another village passed a Nongyan beginning of spring “Spring hit fifty-nine”.In the modern life of reinforced concrete, had no warm and sensitive to seasonal.Memory, after the hammer can not hit all broken stone cold break “three thousand nine hundred forty-nine ice go” cold, farm people lying in a warm blanket, which date “of Spring” sit there straight fingers count on fingers.Spring is the fight “broke the cold, broke cold, cold hit nine of warmth.”.The ancients said: the beginning of spring this day, “Yang and from the sting, goods things are Spring”.After the beginning of spring, as “Nearly song” and said, “five thousand nine hundred sixty-nine see the river willow”, rebirth vibrant, Four Seasons began a new cycle.Ancient “Kwan Fong spectrum” to be interpreted as the beginning of spring: “Li, also founded.Also established the beginning of spring air. “.Chinese traditional culture to fifteen days beginning of spring is divided into three candidates: “Dongfeng thaw a candidate, two candidates insect sting began vibrating, three candidates Zhi negative ice fish,” said Dongfeng send warm, the earth began to thaw.Five days after the beginning of spring, the insects that lived in the cave slowly waking up, another five days, the river ice began to melt, the fish start to swim on the water, this time on the water there is no complete dissolution of ice sheets, as is fish floating in the water is generally a negative.Generally in the beginning of spring around the Spring Festival, Chinese New Year, whether before or after the Spring Festival, is strong in the flavor, visiting friends and socialize with each other, red lanterns red couplets, firecrackers sounded from time to time as well, against the background of your feelings quite it is good. Childhood impressions of the “spring” is from the same clan Great grandmother saying to “spring” of the cut.Great grandmother used to say that the beginning of spring: “Spring hit fifty-nine, and everyone pulled leg of pork, spring play sixty-nine, every family to sell the cow.”.Great grandmother explained that playing in fifty-nine spring, this year will be good weather, the New Year will eat meat and fish; sixty-nine playing in spring this year is the “famine” can only sell the cow degree famine.Although the memory of the great grandmother was illiterate, she learned of the season rather “learned” holidays neighbor aunt aunt who did not understand the etiquette taboo, like to ask Granny.Great Grandma childhood to believe these words.Great grandmother not only “learned”, but also very kind-hearted enthusiasm.When the beginning of spring will sew a lot of big cock, in addition to his grandson wearing, but also to the neighborhood kids.I wear too big cock hour Granny seam.Grandma said, sew cock to play in the first day of spring, the day is called “Spring Festival”.I asked Grandma why the big cock to a child.Grandma said, like to eat peas cock, cock evil, God of Plague “acne” will not be attached to the body of a child; cock eat centipedes, scorpions and other poisonous insects, with the cock, these poisons will not close a child, which called “prevails over evil.”!I asked: Why wear the Dragon Boat Festival “top five twists” to a child, my grandmother called a large “fire with fire”.I also asked Grandma why the people in the village tube “spring” is called “playing the Spring”, Grandma said, “Spring” “Spring play” thing, a child Nobody is allowed to ask.Now think about Grandma certainly do not know. Teenagers, Chin fantasy as the ground of weeds like crazy vine longer wants anything to find out what.In Great Grandma I did not find out here, I was eyeing the two most learned capitalists grandfather.”Playing the Spring” That day, two and three-grandfather to grandfather the fields “test the plow”.Here we have such a custom, the beginning of spring this day should be put on the ox plow, plow three times in the most fertile fields symbolic.I found two grandfather, di-n-grandfather recited, put a word I do not know what is written on the yellow sheet of paper burn, then my grandfather, and three facing the east respectfully knock three heads.After two grandfather got up to stir up a string of firecrackers with a long bamboo pole, snapping put up.Firecrackers sounded the same time, the three grandfather picked up a long rush bullwhip, even the rejection of three whip hoist the throat, playing loud high-pitched “drink throat” (when arable land “skill cow” cattle rousing ” song”).In “Drink throat” sound grandfather of three, was wearing a red silk flower child pull junction, a busy winter Biaofeitizhuang black bullock, arched Fenti in this field even turn after three laps, firecrackers grandfather hands on two bamboo poles just finished bombing last rang. At the moment, I asked the grandmother did not answer the big questions of.Read private school two grandfather said, “spring” Why is it called “playing the Spring”?Because “playing Chunniu”.Elegant up, the beginning of spring is a quite ancient solar terms, thousands of years ago, when for the beginning of spring, but quite valued, the emperor would have three days before the festival of fasting, the day of the nobility led a charge of agriculture to meet the eastern suburbs sentence of God Mountain.Song, not only to hold the ceremony, the Minister for Korea but also with each other Baihe.Folk there are “earth ox will load spring to be” saying the same day someone Mindanao crown Bo belt, dressed as Chun, Chun officials, drums, along the street shouting: “Spring up!The spring!”Thousands of families heard out in force to greet this team Primula.To a designated location, but also against the people Chunniu Sanguijiukou an earthen take the lead with multicolored bullwhip whip Chunniu by the officials, it herd, will smash Chunniu.Finally, to snatch a pulverizer, painted a little on their own horn, that the drive can rinderpest; sprinkle some in their own land, that the God of Earth woo harvest.In the agricultural era farming men and women weave of the farming season, the crops, livestock piety really touched people.Two grandfather went on to say, the old saying, “in five different wind, different customs ten”.After a long period of evolution, we are here to evolve whipping real cow, plow three enclosure.”Spring” is also called “Spring play” a.Old saying “Qin people to treasure life, people lazy long grass”.”Land is a cornucopia, see if you do not wash hands frequently.”.”Playing the Spring” is whipping the fast ox, who destroyed people “lazy”.After returning home two grandfather gave me a paper-cut specifically for the “spring” made an older generation passed down: a cute little fox to catch a cow, the picture is quite cordial.The upper right corner of the paper-cut, two grandfather with his beautiful Chinese sum lower case document intended to write ancient proverb: “Spring Spring breeze to move, Chunshui Liu Chunjiang.Spring people drink liquor, spring whip officer Chunniu.”So far every day to the beginning of spring, I will copy a few to send to friends. Contemporary scholars left the river “spring” well written poem: “rain-by-westerly wind, sun and earth heating raw.Everything Su Meng wake landscape, farm plow beginning of the year and seek.”Social change, let us work with the farming community lopsided, but good farming culture still deeply in our blood flowing.In the winter, the farming culture of the “spring”, no matter how slow it’s winter faded, ignorant that touch of green in the middle of winter, “nine days,” has long been showing new green leaf of farm.
