Dragon Head Raising Day
Dragon head (lunar February 2), also known as spring ploughing Festival, farming Festival, Green Dragon Festival, spring Dragon Festival, is a traditional Chinese folk festival. "Dragon" refers to the eastern Canglong seven constellations in the twenty-eight constellations. At the beginning of the middle of spring, the "dragon horn star" rises from the eastern horizon, so it is called "Dragon Rising". The day when the dragon looks up is at the beginning of zhongchunmao month. The five elements of "Mao" belong to wood, and the hexagram image is "Zhen". In 1992, in lingua Huzhen, it means that the dragon has left the latent state, and has appeared on the surface, and is a budding elephant. In the farming culture, "dragon head" indicates that Yang Qi is growing, rain is increasing, and everything is full of vitality, from which spring farming begins. Since ancient times, people also regard the dragon head up day as a day to pray for good weather, Exorcism and disaster, and auspicious transportation.
"Dragon head up" originates from the worship of natural phenomena, which is related to people's understanding of the movement of stars and farming culture in ancient times. Although "dragon head up" has a long history, it became a national festival and appeared in the literature after the Yuan Dynasty. There are many activities related to "Dragon Rising", but no matter which way, they are all carried out around the beautiful belief of Dragon God. It is an activity that people place their hope for survival. As far as the whole country is concerned, due to different regions, customs vary from place to place.
Since ancient times, people have been celebrating the dragon on the day of "Dragon Rising" in mid spring, praying for the dragon's blessing, good weather and bumper harvest. "February 2" in the lunar calendar is not only the "dragon head up Festival", but also the "commune day" for the birth of the earth God. Due to the overlapping of festivals, "February 2" in some areas of southern China has both the custom of dragon head raising Festival and the custom of sacrificing society. For example, in Zhejiang, Fujian, Guangdong, Guangxi and other areas, "February 2" (the fifth day after the beginning of spring in ancient times) is mainly for sacrificing Society (God of land), and dragon sacrificing is mostly in the dragon flying sky at Duanyang.
