Spring Festival in the mountains – Sohu news-superrecovery

The new year – Sohu news original title: new year Fan Renbi mountains of my childhood in the remote mountain area in a small village, the village people were very poor. The new year is different from the other people in the mountains, except for the happy atmosphere. In 50s, the mountains are people who have the time of need, not only the usual clothes worn, even the new year did not add new clothes. My family economic status in the village is medium, during the Spring Festival, parents also give us children will buy a top hand woven cotton soil cap or a pair of socks, from New Year’s Eve to wear at the beginning of the month is five, we will coax mother new hat new socks off clean, hide, and wear again next year. The new year’s Eve dinner without rice cake, white, red eggs and hoof?? (a couple of pounds to ten pounds from pig leg). Hoof size is very different, rich people are more than a dozen heavy heavy hoof, no money will buy 35 catties heavy, really no money people boil a big taro, put a few pieces of pork on the hoof as hoof. "The new year to eat fish, May there be surpluses every year." mountain people also believe that Keshanli people reluctant to spend money to buy fish, most people are white? Made of fish, put a red paper cut the fish. Chickens and ducks are self supporting, and every family will kill a rooster in the Spring Festival, but there are also poor people who can’t eat ducks and chickens during the spring festival. In addition to these things, there is no other good food, can eat is homemade noodles fried mustard. The children new year isn’t what fun things, most love playing firecrackers also only in the new year’s Eve, the first, to put the lantern, is "crackling" dozens of rings, not like now so put a bundle. The way the children play firecrackers in the mountains is very rude, firecrackers tied to the tail of the pig, frighten the pigs fled everywhere; some of the firecrackers inserted in the cow dung heap, when the explosion of cow dung spilled on people. Although these play is a child’s prank, but also bring great joy to children in the mountains. "Chinese New Year Love kids, adults are afraid of money", this is a new year when debt people lament. The mountains are rules at the end of the year again, when people are eating dinner on New Year’s Eve, is not to pay the rent; eat meal to open the door before the Lunar New Year’s Eve is the collection time (at the beginning of the month is a door to fifteen after the Lantern Festival is not the collection), if not pay back the money, when the family ate a meal in the new year’s Eve hurried into the nearby mountains (can’t hide in others, the whole way home) the local people called the "emperor". Creditors come to collect debts, as long as his family said the parents go out "emperor", creditors will realize no money to hide, also won’t dun. New year’s Day is not going out. The second grade is "travel day", after breakfast, the whole village male adults and children go to the mountain, cut a small tree, come back in the doorway, circle red paper, this is called "travel"". It is the meaning to the mountains to cut trees, said Spring is in the air., full of vigour; trees inserted in the door, the door has a mean "shake Qian Shu", the coming year will make a fortune. After the "travel", industrious people began to work in the afternoon, usually in the home weaving soil dustpan, hoe handle, preparation of farm tools, for spring production preparation.

山里过年-搜狐新闻  原标题:山里过年   范仁碧   我童年生活在山旮旯里的一个小村子,全村人都很穷。过年与山外人相比,除了欢乐气氛一样,别的就不一样了。   上世纪50年代,山里人过的是缺衣少食的日子,不仅平时衣衫破旧,即使过年也没添件新衣裳。我家经济状况在村里算是中等,过年时,父母也只给我们小孩每人买一顶手工织的棉线土帽或一双袜子,从除夕穿到正月初五,母亲就哄我们将新帽新袜脱下来洗干净,藏起来,等明年再穿。   除夕年饭少不了年糕、白?、红蛋和?蹄(一块两斤至十几斤不等的猪腿)。?蹄大小差别很大,有钱人是十几斤重的大?蹄,没钱人就买三五斤重的,实在没钱的人就煮个大芋头,在上面放几片猪肉作为?蹄。“过年吃鱼,年年有余”的说法山里人也相信,可山里人舍不得花钱买鱼吃,多数人是用白?做成鱼形,上面放一张红纸剪的鱼图。鸡鸭是自养的,各家过年都会宰一只公鸡,但也有过年吃不上鸡鸭的穷人。除了这些东西,再也没有别的好菜了,能够放开吃的是自家做的粉条炒芥菜。   山里的孩子过年没有什么好玩的东西,最喜欢玩的鞭炮也只在除夕、初一、元宵才能放,都是“噼里啪啦”几十响的,没有像现在放的那么一大捆。山里孩子玩鞭炮的方法很粗鲁,将鞭炮绑在猪尾巴上,弄得受惊的猪四处逃窜;有的将鞭炮插在牛粪堆上,爆炸时牛粪溅到人身上。这些玩法虽然是小孩的恶作剧,倒也给山里小孩带来莫大的快乐。   “小孩爱过年,大人怕还钱”,这是过年时有欠债的人家发出的慨叹。山里人年终讨债是有规矩的,当人家正在吃除夕饭时,是不能上门讨债的;吃完除夕饭到大年初一开门之前是讨债时间(正月初一开门后至十五元宵节前是不能讨债的),要是没钱还债,当家人在吃过除夕饭后就赶紧躲到附近山上去(不能躲在别人家里),这种逃债方式当地人叫“做皇帝”。债主上门讨债时,只要他家里人说家长外出“做皇帝”了,债主就会意识到没钱还债躲起来了,也就不会再逼债了。   大年初一是不出门的。初二是“出行日”,吃过早饭,全村男性大人和小孩都到山上去砍一棵小树回来插在自家门口,圈上红纸条,这就叫“出行”。它的含义是到山上砍棵树,表示春意盎然,生机勃勃;小树插在门口,意思是门前有棵“摇钱树”,来年会发财。“出行”后,勤劳的人下午就开始忙活了,一般是在家编土箕、上锄柄、备农具,为春耕生产做准备。   编者注:该文原发时间为2013年02月08日相关的主题文章:
