Chinese New Year

The Spring Festival is coming in a few days. When I heard the sporadic sound of firecrackers, I couldn’t help thinking of some memories of shooting. When I was young, I would hear the saying that every year when I entered the lunar December: Laba worshiped the stove, and when the new year (spring festival) came, girls wanted flowers, and boys wanted cannons. At that time, after Laba Festival, sporadic firecrackers could be heard every day, and the taste of the year became stronger and stronger. What children look forward to most is the new year. Because only during the Spring Festival can you wear new clothes that your mother bought or made for yourself; During the Spring Festival, you can eat delicious dumplings made by your parents, and when your parents make dumplings, there will be a coin wrapped into the dumplings, who eats dumplings with coins means who is blessed. Only during the Spring Festival can children go to visit relatives with their parents. Relatives will send themselves some brand-new lucky money of one cent, two cents or five cents. As a boy, the most unforgettable thing during the Spring Festival is to let go. What I like most is the fragrance of gunpowder after firecrackers. Shooting is also a custom during the Spring Festival. It is said that there was a monster called Nian in ancient times, who often came to disturb people’s life. Therefore, people made bamboos into cannons, also called firecrackers. Whenever the new year beast came, people would scare the new year beast away with firecrackers. When I was young, only during the Spring Festival could I see my father buy some firecrackers, or wrap them around a long stick and light them; Or simply put them on the ground and light them with lighted sticks, then I heard the sound of crackling firecrackers. I can’t forget the scene of smoke rising and red paper covering the floor at that time; I can’t forget the time when my brother and I went to other people’s home to pick up firecrackers in the morning of New Year’s Day every year when we were young. At that time, the sound of firecrackers in the village was heard before dawn; At that time, because of the poor economic conditions in the family, parents had no extra money and bought us some cannons that our children could set, I have no money to buy some beautiful fireworks for us. Therefore, if you want to shoot, you only have to get up early in the morning. When you hear which one to fire firecrackers, you will go to that family to pick them up. No matter whether there are sticky or not, Put it in your pocket. Then come back, break the sticky ones, clip the sticky ones in the middle of the non-sticky guns, or weave the sticky ones together, then use the burning wooden sticks to light it, or use the incense bought by my mother to light it; Then run to the distance to see the light shining from the sticky gunpowder, and the sound of the artillery afterwards; Sometimes it will not make a sound because the sticky clip is too tight, but it will not be burnt. At that time, it will be reignited without sticky. I only remember that one year when my father heard the peddling of burning paper in the village, he gave me two cents to buy burning paper. (At that time, because Xiao did not know that he bought burnt paper to pay tribute to his relatives and gave some money to his deceased relatives.) I bought a big thunder with that two cents. As a result, my father was very angry and beat me severely. Let me know my fault and teach me that I should keep my relatives in mind at any time. Always be grateful at any time. When I was young, I also saw the scene of adults or elder brothers setting off the Big Thunder. At that time, they either found an open space to stand the Thunder on the ground, lit it with cigarette butts or sticks and ran away hurriedly; Or held the Thunder in their right hand, holding cigarette butts or sticks in his left hand, he raised his hand upward after lighting, threw the cannon into the air, and then he heard the sound of thunder. Of course, sometimes he couldn’t hear it, at that time, I will hear them say involuntarily: Well, I fell to death. After that, they either ran to see whether it was sticky or not, or didn’t care about the Silent Thunder, and then took one out of their pockets; Sometimes they also found a broken iron bowl, or cover the Thunder with a bowl first. Only the head of the Thunder was exposed, or the Thunder was put on the ground, with an iron bowl in one hand and a burning cigarette butts or sticks in the other hand to light it. After lighting, the bowl was quickly covered on the burning Thunder. After lighting, leave quickly, and see how high the Thunder can collapse the bowl, and whose thunder can collapse the bowl the highest, which means whose thunder is the best; sometimes the Thunder would be inserted into the snow and the snow would be splashed; Of course, at that time, some people would play some tricks, that was, the Thunder would be inserted into the feces and lit. At that time, it was inevitable that feces would splash on someone’s New Clothes. Although some people laughed, children with feces would inevitably go home to be beaten and scolded by their parents or quarreled, sometimes the child’s mother would find the blasting person to make a theory. I also remember that one year when my younger brother was young, he wrapped the cannon in a so-called cigarette rolled by himself to show off to his younger sister. Don’t want to run away and break your mouth. I didn’t dare to tell my parents. Fortunately, my sister helped him apply some toothpaste, which eased the pain. I can’t remember when I started shooting, but it has a history of at least 20 years (not including picking up scattered guns when I was young and lighting them). Since I went to work in other places in November of 1992, in the spring festival of 1993, because I spent the Spring Festival in other places (Yuzhou), I began to buy some firecrackers to set off every year. Only on the fifth day of the New Year that year, I didn’t hear the firecrackers there, and then I knew the rules there. After getting married, I will buy seven firecrackers at one time before the Spring Festival every year. And some monthly trips like kicking feet (on New Year’s Eve, put a short one before eating big dumplings, and put a long one before the early morning of New Year’s Eve. After the dumplings are cooked on the first day of the new year, may the heaven and earth hang up when they are full of gods, and hang up before breakfast on the fifth day of the new year. The remaining two hexagrams are on Lantern Festival.) When the child grows up, he will also buy some guns for his son to fire. What shuai pao match cannon drop di di jin children. Because it is Spring Festival, although sometimes my wife complains that I shouldn’t spend money to buy firecrackers. However, the new year and the festival are all full of excitement and joy. Who would buy guns to play. Therefore, she said that she bought mine for me. To be honest, because she would not earn more money, the annual consumption of firecrackers never exceeded 100 yuan. And fireworks is a luxury for me, and I can only watch others set off fireworks every year. Every year, I will buy some second skirting and monthly travel. Every time I watch the monthly travel with whistle rising after setting off, it seems that I have released a dream in my heart. In these years, firecrackers were fired sometimes in the snow, sometimes in rainy days; In these years, firecrackers were fired at the end with a whip burning. Only in the morning of the Spring Festival in 2004, it was also a long whip. I ordered it four times before I finished it. At that time, I wondered if there would be anything bad? I didn’t care about it afterwards. Unexpectedly, at three o’clock in the morning on the second day of the new year, the neighbor aunt woke us up, saying that one of my cousins had passed away and asked us to go. It was a surprise that my cousin was less than fifty at that time. Time flies so fast that ten years have passed quickly. I don’t know if everything is good in that country? I just want to say to my cousin: brother, now your village has been demolished, aunt, sister-in-law, brother, second elder brother, it is already the fifth Spring Festival for the fourth brother and the fifth brother to rent a house in our village, and your community is also under construction. It is estimated that at most three years, aunt and them will be glad to move to a new house, you don’t have to worry about it. If you are well, everything will be fine! With the continuous improvement of living conditions and my son growing up day by day, the firecrackers I buy every year are getting older and older. I can buy some longer firecrackers because I don’t buy for my son to play. Although the firecrackers I bought are getting longer and longer, I can’t feel the fun of shooting in my childhood, because I grow old day by day reluctantly. I couldn’t help thinking of that sentence: the world grew one year old in the sound of firecrackers, but I was thirsty that I was ten years younger in the sound of firecrackers. I cherish the red paper on the ground after firecrackers rang in front of every household on the first day of the new year, especially the red paper on the snow after a snow, and the rising smoke after firecrackers and the fragrance of cannon medicine; I cherish the time when I picked up firecrackers with my younger brother.
