the lantern festival
The Lantern Festival, also known as the Shangyuan Festival, the first month of the year, the new year's Eve or the Lantern Festival, is one of the traditional Chinese festivals. The time is the 15th day of the first month of the lunar calendar. The first month is the first month of the lunar calendar. The ancients called "night" as "Xiao". The fifteenth day of the first month is the first full moon night of the year, so the fifteenth day of the first month is called "Lantern Festival". According to the Taoist "Sanyuan", the 15th day of the first month is also called "Shangyuan Festival". Since ancient times, the Lantern Festival has been dominated by the warm and festive custom of watching lanterns.
The formation of the Lantern Festival has a long process, rooted in the ancient folk custom of turning on lights to pray for blessings. According to general information and folklore, the fifteenth day of the first month has been paid attention to in the Western Han Dynasty, but the Lantern Festival on the fifteenth day of the first month really became a national folk festival after the Han and Wei dynasties. The rise of the custom of lighting lanterns on the 15th day of the first lunar month was also related to the eastward spread of Buddhism. In the Tang Dynasty, Buddhism flourished, and officials and people generally "lit lanterns for Buddha" on the 15th day of the first lunar month, so Buddhist lanterns spread all over the people. Since the Tang Dynasty, Lantern Festival lighting has become a legal matter.
