    Temple Fair丨元宵节庙会:热热闹闹的中国节

    Lantern Festival, also known as Shangyuan Festival, falls on the 15th day of the 1st lunar month. It marks the end of the Spring Festival season. The customs of Lantern Festival may be slightly different across the country, but generally, eating Yuan Xiao, enjoying festive lanterns, guessing lantern riddles, setting off firecrackers and fireworks, playing drums, walking on stilts, watching dragon dancing and lion dancing are the main activities.

    元宵节,又称上元节、小正月、元夕或灯节,每年农历正月十五日的元宵节,是中国春节年俗中最后一个重要的节令。过完元宵节,就意味着中国人对春节的庆祝活动正式结束啦!中国元宵节的习俗自古以来就以热烈喜庆为主色调,而遍布大江南北的传统庆祝习俗也各不相同,出门赏月、燃灯放焰、喜猜灯谜、共吃元宵、逛庙会等等。此外,不少地方元宵节还增加了耍龙灯、耍狮子、踩高跷、划旱船、扭秧歌、打太平鼓等传统民俗表演。


    As an international school that respects traditional folk culture, Changsha WES Academy celebrated the Lantern Festival by organizing a Temple Fair in school.

    作为一所尊重传统民俗文化的国际化学校,长沙玮希国际学校的元宵节庙会在一片锣鼓喧天的欢快太平鼓声中拉开了序幕。

    Mr. Corey from the United States dressed up as the “God of Wealth” and gave red envelopes full of blessings to our children. In a festive atmosphere you could find a variety of stands set up by different grades: sugar coated haws on sticks, lanterns, handmade cakes, beverages, puzzle games, traditional pot game, modern archery, charity fundraising project… Each booth was designed and organized by students themselves. Parents and teachers were impressed by these creative ideas and spoke highly of them.

    由来自美国的Corey老师装扮的具有异域风采的“财神爷”,更是为我们的孩子们带来了饱含满满祝福的大红包。在一片喜庆热闹的氛围中,由各年级学生自己搭建的各具特色的集市摊位纷纷吸引了众多的“粉丝”:现场制作的糖葫芦、元宵节的节日彩灯、手工制作的蛋糕、特色调制饮料、益智动脑游戏、传统投壶比赛、现代射箭竞技、公益募捐项目……每个摊位都是由孩子们亲自布置和构思,并通过团队共同合作完成。孩子们奇思妙想的主意,五花八门的吆喝,色彩缤纷的创意让在场共同参与活动的家长和老师们纷纷竖起了大拇指。


    Temple Fair is a traditional folk activity in China. By being involved in the process of preparation, students were allowed to better understand and experience the traditional Chinese culture. What’s more this was considered as a good opportunity to develop their creative thinking, hands-on ability and teamwork spirit.

    逛庙会是中国人春节的传统习俗,长沙玮希国际学校让学生们自己设计和参与传统文化的建设过程,不仅让孩子们能够更深入了解和感受中国传统民俗文化的特色,更能提高孩子们的思维创意能力、动手实践能力和团队协作能力。
