Along with the sound of firecrackers, the paper of the kitchen King was burned, and it was called the Kitchen King sent to heaven.A few days ago, there were more or less in the street selling maltose and rice candy, candy shaped or rectangular or melon shaped.According to the old saying, if sugar sticks to the mouth of the kitchen King, he will not report bad things in his family to the Jade Emperor in heaven.Now, there are candy shops, but only for everyone, and they no longer stick to the kitchen king’s mouth.After 23, everyone is more busy, the New Year blink of an eye to ah.Before the New Year’s Eve, every family must put up Spring Festival couplets, must have a thorough cleaning, called sweeping.There must be enough meat, chicken, fish, vegetables and rice cakes to last at least a week — according to the old custom, most shops were closed for five days and opened on the sixth day of the first lunar month.If you do not prepare food for the next few days, it is not easy to replenish temporarily.”Peiping Year” Liang Shiqiu (excerpt) after the festival, the year in you.Pewter censers, pewter sticks, pewter fruit bowls, and saucers are hauled out of their cobwebbed chests for the annual scrub.Palace lantern, gauze lamp, ox horn lamp, together out of the cage.New Year’s goods should also be prepared as early as possible, including dry goods used in the kitchen, dried apples and fruits used for worshiping gods and ancestors, peony daffodils offered in the house, and miscellaneous foods for children to eat.Honey is already in baiyunguan ordered, when the time comes, a bowl of paper paste basket with a bowl to send to the door.The size of the home, in and out, such as wind devils.Housewife of course has extra burden more, want to prepare new clothes new shoes new socks to everybody, although it is cloth shoe cloth socks cloth big unlined upper garment, always want fluctuation new.The Past Year mo Yan (Excerpt) After laba another half month, it is the day of ci Zao.We also call the Day of ci Zao xiao Nian there, so we live it more seriously.Breakfast and lunch or weekday rough food, dinner is a dumpling.I ate a light breakfast and lunch to wait for the dumplings.At that time my appetite is really amazing, can eat how many dumplings do not say scary.Ci zao is a ceremony, that is, when the dumplings out of the pot, first filled out two bowls for the stove, and then burn half knife yellow table paper, the stove horse also burned.Burning finished, the dumpling soup drips a little on the paper ash, and then knock a head, even if the worship stove is finished.That’s the easiest.Richer people would buy some guandong sugar and put it in front of the kitchen. The idea was that the Kitchen God, who was about to report his work to Heaven, would taste some sweetness and speak good words to God.Others say it is to stick the kitchen God’s mouth with kwantung sugar.This kind of argument is unreasonable, you stick to his mouth, the bad is can’t say, but the good also can’t say!I wish you and your family peace and happiness today
