九九重阳节,携家人一同登高赏菊观景,这项传统的家庭活动被人们沿袭至今。不少子女将送父母一趟旅行作为礼物,成为今年重阳节的新时尚。

  农历九月九日的重阳节,英文翻译为"Double Ninth Festival",又称老人节。因为古老的《易经》中把定为阴数,把定为阳数,九月九日,日月并阳,两九相重,故而叫重阳,也叫重九。重阳节早在战国时期就已经形成,到了唐代,重阳被正式定为民间的节日,此后历朝历代沿袭至今。

  重阳节首先有登高的习俗,金秋九月,天高气爽,这个季节登高远望可达到心旷神怡、健身祛病的目的。和登高相联系的有吃重阳糕的风俗。高和糕谐音,作为节日食品,最早是庆祝秋粮丰收、喜尝新粮的用意,之后民间才有了登高吃糕,取步步高的吉祥之意。

  The Double Ninth Festival 

  the ninth day of the ninth lunar month

  The "Chong Yang Festival" is celebrated on the ninth day of the ninth lunar month, and it is as such known as the Double Ninth Festival. 

  Origins: The festival began as early as the Warring States Period (475 - 221 BC). According to the yin/yang dichotomy that forms a basis to the Chinese world view, yin represents the elements of darkness and yang represents life and brightness. The number nine is regarded as yang. The ninth day of the ninth month is a double yang day, hence the name "Chong Yang Festival". (Chong means "repeat" in Chinese.) The ninth month also heralds the approach of winter. It is a time when the living need warm clothing, and filial Chinese sons and daughters extended this to make the festival a time for providing winter clothes for their ancestors. The Double Ninth Festival, therefore, also became an occasion to visit the graves of dead family members. Clothes made of paper would then be burnt as offerings.

  Climbing mountains: On the Double Ninth Festival, people customarily climb mountains, appreciate chrysanthemum flowers, drink chrysanthemum wine, and eat double-ninth cakes. The Double Ninth Festival is also the "Old Men Festival". Old people are especially meant to improve their health by taking part in the activities on the day of the festival.

  Family get-togethers: The Double Ninth Festival is also a time for family get-togethers. It is an occasion to remember one's ancestors, the sacrifices they made and the hardships they underwent. Often, family outings are organised during which people search to renew their appreciation of nature and to reaffirm their love and concern for family members and close friends.
