Introduction: There are many taboos in Qingming this year, and the ancestors said: 3 people do not go to the grave, and 5 people do not do it, is it reasonable?
Qingming Festival tomb is an important custom of the traditional Chinese festival Qingming Festival, which is usually performed around April 4 or 5 every year. Its origins can be traced back to the ancestors of ancient China, and it was first established to worship ancestors and remember ancestors.
Traditional tomb visits during the Qingming Festival include burning paper money, burning incense, and worshipping ancestors in front of cemeteries or ancestral cemeteries to express respect and remembrance for ancestors. At the same time, some activities such as tomb sweeping, tomb repair, and tree planting will be carried out to maintain and beautify the ancestral tomb.
The custom of visiting tombs on the Qingming Festival varies throughout China, but generally follows the basic steps of sacrifice, tomb sweeping, and cleaning. For example, in the Jiangnan region, people would worship their ancestors with chicken, duck, fish, cakes, fruits and other foods, and burn paper money and paper clothes in front of the tomb to show filial piety to their ancestors; In the north, people often place wreaths or flower baskets in front of tombs to commemorate their deceased relatives.
The tomb is also a social event, and family members and friends usually go to the ancestral tomb together to worship. In some places, folk performances, folk games and fairs are also held, allowing people to experience a strong festive atmosphere while mourning their ancestors.
In recent years, with the development of society and the acceleration of urbanization, more and more people live in cities, while ancestral tombs are far away from their daily lives, which has also made some changes in the custom of going to the tomb on the Qingming Festival. Some people choose to worship their ancestors through the Internet or mobile phones, while others worship in parks or cemeteries in cities, which has also become a new way.
As an important custom in Chinese traditional culture, the tomb on the Qingming Festival is not only a tribute to and remembrance of ancestors, but also a maintenance and inheritance of family and traditional culture.
However, this year's Qingming Festival is more special, Qingming Festival just met the leap month, this situation in the rural grave has a lot of taboos and attention, such as the ancestors said, this year's leap month Qingming, 3 people do not go to the grave, go to the grave 5 do not do, today to focus on to tell you about this taboo and pay attention, take advantage of the Qingming Festival has not yet arrived, quickly understand, to avoid doing taboo things at that time.
3 of them do not go to the grave, who are the 3 people? If you don't do it in the grave, what 5 things do you mean if you don't do it?
The first person, the patient does not go to the grave, according to the words of the elderly, the patient is not suitable for climbing mountains and wading, so when Qingming sweeps the tomb, it is not recommended that the patient also go to the grave, it is best to rest at home, which is conducive to the recovery of the body. The patient's climbing itself is not suitable, not to mention that exercise is not conducive to physical recovery, in case of a fall or something, it is not worth the loss. So the statement that this patient does not go to the grave is quite reasonable.
The second person, the elderly over 70 years old do not go to the grave, this has two reasons, one is that most of the elderly over 70 years old are incapacitated, climbing the mountain is very difficult for them, and it is also very dangerous. One reason is that the 70-year-old man goes to visit the grave, facing his relatives of the previous generation, and his feelings are relatively deep, which is easy to cause sadness and is very unnecessary.
The third person, the son-in-law does not go to the grave, the son-in-law belongs to an outsider, it is generally not recommended to go to the grave, unless it is a son-in-law who is recruited to go to the grave. Otherwise, if you take your son-in-law to the grave, it will make people tell jokes, saying that your family does not mean to be a man, and in order to avoid suspicion, everyone will still not take the son-in-law to the grave.
