Recalling Beiping's Old Year
After all, this ancient city of Peiping is a complete old city. Not only are the bricks around the front door old gray, but the flag people in the city are holding fast to their old life in Xie Wang and keeping their old ideas. Even at the time of the New Year's Day, they are still conservative and everyone passes the old year.. Didn't there ever be a new movement in the ancient city?? Have you set off a new trend of thought across fierce wind "and have you melted down many new figures of all kinds?"? However, the city is still an ancient city and the old customs are still in full swing..
It took more than five years for Shenyang in the northeast to go into exile in the ancient city.. Perhaps it was because the customs inside and outside the customs became one with the Manchu dynasty, and it is still the case to this day.! Therefore, although they went to Peiping from the distant Shenyang, what they saw and received did not differ greatly from what they saw and received when they were in Shenyang.. According to the residents in Shenyang, when they talk about "Beijing", they really surpass the facts and enter the realm of myth.. For example, they said that the city wall of Beijing is so tall, the gate is so wide and the gate ring is made of gold.. As for the daily food of the people in the capital city, the legend is even more bizarre. Mukden loko, who is still popular in northeast China's "mother's side", is popular for telling the story of Beijing's magical prosperity.. The content of the story is that a farmer's wife from Sanhe County went to a rich family in the imperial city to be a mother, and then rode a donkey back to her hometown.. Many residents in her hometown asked her about Beijing, and the mother gave her a lot of nonsense.. The listeners were stunned. not know why it is so, from the popular Fengtian lok zi inside, can see that although there is only a gap of more than 1,000 inside between Shenyang and Peiping, the road talk during this period is already very unbelievable.. But speaking carefully, what's so special about Beijing and Shenyang?? It's nothing special, but Beiping is more magnificent in weather than Shenyang.!
For the time being, Beijing's old age can be seen..
Let's start with the Laba of the twelfth month of the lunar calendar: Beijingers eat "Laba congee" more than Shenyang people do.. The Laba congee of Shenyang people has a simple recipe and is only for people to eat. The Laba congee of Beijingers, on the other hand, has a complicated recipe. Rice is not just one kind of rice, but a mixture of various kinds of fine rice, beans and other things, plus Mi Liu, lotus seeds, dates and chestnuts.. When the porridge is made, the porridge is covered with Fresh Color's peach kernels, almonds, melon seeds, Timecapsule, red silk, fingered citron, white sugar, peanut kernels and so on, which make it colorful and pleasing to the eye.. Sue Such, offering sacrifices to the gods and ancestors before they can be eaten by people.. After 宏海国际平台 eating, people must also paint the walls with porridge, and all courtyard doors, trees and other things must be decorated with porridge. They must also feed cats, ancient dogs, chickens, ducks and other birds.. This kind of ostentation and extravagance, according to Beijing people, is called "spectrum" and must be emphasized. If this is compared with Shenyang, the only difference is luxury and luxury, but the style of a foreign servant and the luxury of a householder..
On the new year's day of the old calendar, many Beijingers offered sacrifices to gods after the 5th watch, burned incense and set off firecrackers. after that, the whole family ate dumplings.. After eating dumplings, there was another family reunion dinner.. In this meal, pepper and cypress wine is an indispensable delicacy, which means the beginning of summer for one year..
As for the new year greeting rules, adults also send gifts to adults.. For example, when Wei Youdeng attends the New Year celebration, the host must also present gifts. According to the Beijingers, they call them "Pepsi Box". Among them are persimmon dried fruit, walnut, longan, jujube, chestnut, peanut, etc.. This article contains a meaning, for example persimmon has a meaning of "everything goes well", walnut is "harmony", longan is "wealth rises", jujube, chestnut is "He Wants Wo Have A Baby". As for young brothers wishing New Year, they must send new year's money..
However, the most distinctive feature of Beiping's old age is not religious creed, but the etiquette and customs of the New Year Festival.. This point deserves special mention..
In the old year of Peiping, on the first day of the first month and the second day of the second day of the first month, apart from the luxury of human support, the ancestors of the gods were also required to worship.. For example, on New Year's Day there is a sacrifice to God Such, and on the second day of the month, one goes to the Temple of Wealth to pray for the God of Wealth.. It turns out that the Temple of Wealth is located outside Akira the door of etiquette. According to custom, the earlier you go to the temple to burn incense, the more efficacious you will be.. Therefore, every year in the dusk of Lunar January 2nd Day in Chu Xiao, Miser in the ancient city of inside have been waiting in groups in inside, Zhangthe door of etiquette, waiting for the door to open so as to squeeze out the door and arrive one step earlier.. Every year in Lunar January 2nd, in the ancient city of Guanganmen and inside, people are often beaten to death due to overcrowding. Women and children are squeezed to the ground. The situation is as miserable as refugees fighting for cars.. However, those hard-working people, the first-class Miser people, had already run to a small shop near the temple of wealth as early as the first day of the month and spent a night in cold weather because "First Come, First Love" had arrived at the temple first.! These Miser methods of seeking wealth are called "borrowing silver ingots". In fact, they are called borrowing but stealing.. It turns out that among the incense burners, one flour kowtowed to burn incense while the other flour took advantage of it and put it in his arms to take it home for the mammon case.. The more you steal, the richer you become.. But the most important thing is that whoever steals it, Lunar January 2nd in the following year must double the repayment. Otherwise, if The Wrath Of The Gods is offended, it will not only fail to make a fortune, but also make a fortune.. When it comes to "stealing silver ingots", there is no training and it is not difficult to do it. It turns out that this "stealing silver ingots" has become an open secret. It is not strictly guarded by monks, but is allowed to be stolen by anyone, but more incense must be put in it..
The strangest thing is the temple fair in White Cloud Temple. Outside Xibianmen, White Cloud Temple opened the temple on New Year's Day until the 19th. On the 18th of the first month, it was called "Yan Jiu Hui", also called "Hui Shen". According to the fact that White Cloud Temple was the site of Qiu Chuji, a real person in Changchun, when offering sacrifices to Yuan Dynasty, the "Yan Jiu Hui" should be called "Yan Qiu Hui". Once upon a time, on the night of the 18th of the first month, good men and good women must spend a night in the temple to meet the immortals, while men would be blessed with a big birthday and women would be more expensive than men. therefore, when meeting the immortals, they would often perform romantic comedies..However, since the Republic of China, this custom seems to have failed. However, on the 18th, it is very popular for ancient city people to ride donkeys around White Cloud Temple and visit the elderly in the elderly hall..
Among the temple visitors, the most famous one is visiting Big Bell Temple.. Big Bell Temple is located outside De Sheng Men, also known as Kyosho Temple. The temple has three floors. The top floor is the bell tower, on which the big clock is hung. Therefore, it is famous.. The clock is 1.5 feet high, 1.4 feet in diameter and 7 feet in height. It weighs 87,000 pounds in total.. Inside and outside the clock, all Avatamsaka Sutra characters are inscribed.. Every year the temple opens on the old New Year's Day until the 15th day of the year.. Visitors are very numerous. Apart from burning incense and worshipping gods, they all come to watch the clock.. At the top of the clock, there are two air holes as big as a fist, which is called "beating money eyes". If it is opened, then a loud clang will indicate that it hit the copper bell because of the good fortune of the year.. This is also the way monks make money.. It is said that the daily expenses of the monks used to depend on this.. There are more than thousands of people who come to the temple every day to "hit the money eye". Therefore, the monks gather in copper cash at 0 o'clock every night to fight for more money.. Now, because of the recession in the ancient city, this item of income has been reduced dramatically.. Monks speak, is also a heart-beating pain.
In addition, there are temple fairs such as the Temple of Fire, Huguo Temple, Tieta Tample and San Guan Temple, which are also very lively.. There are also Huang Temple in Anding Gate, Black Temple outside De Sheng Men, Lama Temple such as Yonghe Palace, etc. which are used for ghost fighting, dancing, buza, etc. It also attracts the residents of the city to watch in a crowded way..
The religious beliefs of Beiping's old festivals and customs mentioned above are unique programs that are different from others in the old city..
Although the ancient city of Peiping has been occupied for more than five months, the thought of the old year of the ancient city and the crowded situation of the temple visitors make me remember Peiping more fondly.. (责任编辑：admin)
