The origin of the Spring Festival
The original meaning of the concept of the Spring Festival and the year came from agriculture. In ancient times, people referred to the age cycle of the valley as a year. It is said that the year of the valley is ripe in the Wenhe department. During the Xia and Shang era, the Xia calendar was produced. The cycle of the full moon is the month. The year is divided into twelve months, and the new moon is the day when the moon is not visible. The first month of the new moon is called the beginning of the year. The beginning of the year is also called the year. The name of the year is from the Zhou Dynasty to the Western Han Dynasty. It was officially fixed and has continued to the present. One of the four traditional Chinese festivals during the Spring Festival is the traditional Chinese New Year. The Spring Festival is commonly known as the New Year's Day. The traditional names are "New Year", "Da Nian", "Tian La" and "Xin "Year-old", verbally also known as "pass the new year", "Celebrate the New Year", and "New Year".Chinese people have celebrated the Spring Festival for at least 4,000 years. In the traditional folk sense, the Spring Festival refers to the sacrifice of the twelfth lunar month or the burning stove of the twenty-third or twenty-fourth lunar month, until the nineteenth day of the first lunar month. The Spring Festival is set on the first day of the first month of the lunar calendar, but it usually ends at least until the fifteenth of the first lunar month.
