Many people may know the custom of watching lanterns during the Lantern Festival, but they do not know the origin of lanterns during the Lantern Festival. Today, I will show you how the Lantern Festival Lanterns come.
Regarding the origin of the lantern, we must start with a legend. The Emperor of the Western Han Dynasty dreamed that when the fifteenth day of the first month, a god came to burn the capital, he was very scared. After a lot of people's resolutions, he wanted to be sure that the gods had nostalgia. As long as you plead before setting fire, you will certainly be able to avoid this difficulty. By the fifteenth day of the first month, there are really gods descending from the earth, but the fate of God must be set on fire. At this time, the famous conspirators offered a strategy, thinking that as long as the city lights up, it must be the same as the scene of the fire. At this point, I thought it was burning down.
It is because of this that it is protected from the danger of a city fire. In order to commemorate this day, and also to thank the deity, there is a custom of lighting a lamp on the fifteenth day of the first month. Gradually everyone regarded it as an entertainment and cultural activity, and the Lantern Festival Lanterns naturally came into being and passed down.
Therefore, the Lantern Festival Lanterns began in the Han Dynasty, and gradually became popular among the people after the Tang and Song dynasties in China, following the development of the Chinese nation and slowly developing to the present.
