Lesson Transcript

大家好,我是崔晨。
这节课的向大家介绍的是清明节。清明节大约是每年的四月四号或五号。这一天主要是中国人祭祖,俗称烧香的日子,传统活动是扫墓;而四月春回大地,桃红柳绿,因此清明节也是一个人们踏青郊游的节日。
你知道清明节放假几天吗?
我會在這個視頻的結尾告訴大家答案哦!
清明节这一天是祭祖的日子。富裕的家庭会在祖先的墓碑前上香,但你也会看到许多人在街边烧纸钱。纸钱是烧给逝者的一些仿造的纸币,人们相信辞世的祖先在阴间也需要花钱。近年来,商家的想象力也变得格外丰富。你会看到各式各样的新式“纸钱”:有纸张做的美女、别墅、甚至麻将之类的东西,随着iphone的流行,最近竟然还有纸质的iphone贩卖。
中国素有“红白喜事”一说,“红”指结婚,而“白”就是指亲人的离世了。人的生死是大事,尤其在重视家庭传统的中国。于是,销售花圈、寿衣以及扫墓相关商品的“殡葬业”,这几年频频被媒体指摘为“暴利行业”。
踏青也是清明节的一项传统。踏青,又叫春游。四月份春回大地,到处呈现一派生机勃勃的景象,正是郊游的好时光。而放风筝也是清明时节人们所喜爱的活动。人们不仅白天放,夜间也放。这个节日中既有思念逝去亲人的悲伤,又有踏青游玩的欢笑声,是一个非常独特的节日。
此外,清明节也有许多讲究。比如这一天禁火、忌使针,忌洗衣,大部分地区妇女忌行路等等有趣的讲究。不过现代已经很少有人刻意遵守了。
现在我來告訴你們前面問題的答案
你知道清明节放假几天吗?
清明节放假三天。除了春节、国庆节、劳动节,中国的其他节日一般都只放假一天。由此可以看出清明节的重要性。
这节课你觉得怎么样?你有学到很多有趣的东西吗?

whoa, this is way ahead of me, but very interesting.

What do i do to honor my ancestors? i teach family history classes and help people find their ancestors on a volunteer basis with 3, 4 hour shifts per week. i also index and arbitrate historical records several hours each day, as well as working on my own ancestry lines. I found one of my ancestors invented a guillotine and used it to end his life: After the cleanup, they found it was marked 'for sale or for rent' I think he had a very morbid sense of humor. i do believe in life after death and that people will be re-united with their families when they pass from this earthly existence. I don't think i have Chinese ancestors but i know half the people on the planet speak Chinese, and i want to be able to communicate with them. I am learning faster than i was before!
