Let’s learn about the Double Ninth Festival together

Chongyang begins

Each year, the ninth day of the ninth day of the ninth lunar month is a traditional Chinese festival, the Double Ninth Festival. In ancient China, people believed that “nine” was the largest number, and it was designated as the number of yang. On September 9, the sun and the moon were combined with the sun, and the two and nine were heavy, so it was called the nine-nine double yang. Because “Nine Nine” has the same pronunciation as “Jiu Jiu”, it implies the meaning of long life, health and longevity, and China has always had a tradition of respecting the elderly, so the Double Ninth Festival is also regarded as the “Elderly Person’s Day”.

Chongyang Customs

The Double Ninth Festival, also known as the Double Ninth Festival, the Sunshine Autumn Festival, and the “Autumn Festival”, is a traditional Chinese festival. The Double Ninth Festival has been traveling since ancient times to enjoy the autumn, climb high and look at the distant view, watch chrysanthemums, plant dogwoods, eat Chongyang cakes, and drink chrysanthemum wine. As early as the Warring States Period, the Double Ninth Festival had been formed, and it was officially designated as a folk festival in the Tang Dynasty.


Nine Days Qishan Climbing

Du Mu

Jiang Han’s autumn shadow and wild geese first flew, and he and his guests carried a pot to Cuiwei.

It is rare in this world to open a smile, and chrysanthemums must be inserted all over the head.

But you will be rewarded for the festive season, and you don’t have to go to the haunting light.

This has always been the case, so why should Niushan be alone?

The Double Ninth Festival is also known as the “Climbing Festival”. Wherever you go, there is no pattern. You can climb a mountain or a tower. Legend has it that the ancients worshipped mountain gods and believed that mountain gods could save people from disasters, so people went up the mountains to play and avoid disasters on the Chongyang days when “the anode must change”. At this time, the autumn harvest is over, and farming is relatively idle, and wild fruits and medicinal materials in the mountains are in the ripening season. Farmers have gone up to the mountains to collect wild fruits and medicinal materials. Over time, the custom of climbing high has formed.

Mo Dao does not lose his soul, the curtain rolls in the west wind, and people are thinner than yellow flowers.

Chrysanthemum, the flower of longevity, the Double Ninth Festival is the season when chrysanthemum blooms. It is said that appreciating chrysanthemum and drinking chrysanthemum wine originated from Tao Yuanming, an idyllic poet in Jin Dynasty. Tao Yuanming was famous for his seclusion, famous for his poetry, famous for wine, and also famous for his love of chrysanthemums. Later generations followed suit, and there was a custom of appreciating chrysanthemums on Chongyang. Especially the literati and elegant scholars combined viewing chrysanthemums with feasting in order to get closer to Tao Yuanming.

The dogwood

September 9 in memory of Shandong brothers

Wang Wei

I am a stranger in a foreign land alone, and I miss my relatives every time during the festive season.

Yaozhi brothers climbed high places and planted cornel everywhere.

The dogwood is an evergreen and fragrant plant, which can kill insects and disinfect, dispel cold and wind. The custom of inserting cornel on the Double Ninth Festival was very common in the Tang Dynasty. On the Double Ninth Day, people pick its branches, leaves and fruits, sew it into a small bag with red cloth, and wear it on the body, thinking that it can take refuge and eliminate disasters. In fact, before and after the Chongyang Festival, the autumn rain is humid, and the heat has not receded, and the clothes are prone to mold and mosquitoes. The dogwood can remove insects and prevent moths, which is similar to the effect of burning moxa on the Dragon Boat Festival.

Chongyang season, self-cultivation

Beware of dry autumn

Dryness is the season of autumn, which is easy to damage body fluid and consume fluids; at the same time, autumn is particularly prone to respiratory diseases, such as bronchitis, bronchial asthma, rhinitis, etc., especially for the elderly with low immunity. In response to autumn dryness, you should eat less spicy onions, ginger, garlic, peppers, etc., and eat more sour fruits, vegetables and foods to nourish your liver. In this season, drinking porridge can reduce the burden on people’s gastrointestinal tract and also help digestion.

Warm sleep

Sleep is the most important part of your health. The cool breeze at night in autumn makes it easy to be attacked by “thief wind”. If the “thief wind” blows on the head and face of the sleeping person, the next morning will feel a migraine; if the “thief wind” blows on the abdomen, it will cause diarrhea; if the “thief wind” blows on the exposed limbs, it will also make the muscles in a state of tonic contraction. Therefore, in this season, you must lie down to avoid the wind and cold when you fall asleep. In addition, in autumn, the climate is dry, the wind is strong, and the sweat evaporates quickly, which is easy to cause dry mouth, dry throat, constipation, and dry skin. In daily life, pay attention to maintaining indoor humidity.

Avoid blind complements

Autumn is the season of supplementation, and many elderly people “post autumn fat” at this time. Nowadays, there are many popular science articles about health preservation and health in the society, but some viewpoints are not suitable for everyone. Especially for the elderly, they must supplement according to their specific conditions. Many traditional Chinese medicine supplements are very particular about the cold and heat of the constitution, so be sure to clarify before taking them.

Daily life

The most important thing in changing seasons is to maintain good living habits. It is best not to break the original, habitual and stable living routine.

Older people have brittle bones and are at high risk of osteoarthritis. If there are elderly people at home who are going to climb high, they must be reminded to avoid prolonged strenuous exercise and pay attention to protecting the health of their bones and joints.

Open mind

In autumn, the sunshine decreases, the temperature gradually drops, and the flowers and trees wither. When the elderly are in a bad mood, they will accelerate the rate of physical aging and induce a variety of diseases. Children should talk to their parents more and communicate more.

The best thing in the world

I have grown up, but you are not old

I have the ability to repay, you are still healthy

Chongyang today, make a wish together

I wish the elderly in the family a long and healthy life

I wish the elderly all over the world happiness and health
