* Traditional festivals *

"Traditional festivals" have been the most important seasonal rituals among Chinese people. These are the major patterns of everyday life developed by our ancestors according to the seasonal changes, "plowing in spring, irrigating in summer, reaping in fall, and storing in winter". These are the rules distilled from experiences, which fully convey the Chinese's wisdom, acquired from our ancestors' actual production behaviors handed down to us from generation to generation.With four hundred years of development and evolution, they blend into modern life seamlessly, forming the consolidating power of the society indirectly. In addition, they preserve many of the Han race's time concepts and ritual culture. Nowadays, the seasonal rituals held in accordance with traditional rhythm of everyday life are still in force in Taiwan. Through the pious worship of the gods and ancestors, people hope to request for peace and prosperity. As the custom of "celebration for every festival" is still retained in society, it gives the alienating family members in contemporary society common memories, the chances to celebrate the festivals together, the occasion to consolidate their relations. In addition, many ancient and traditional festivals still preserve some inspiring and touching stories and legends, adding much ducational values and reveries to these events. It manifests the Chinese people's deep-rooted culture and humanistic characters.

Traditional festivals have influenced People's daily life for a long time. Chinese New Year, Moon
Festival,Lantern Festival and so on for Chinese people are important
times for family members to have a reunion and to recall the historical events and the ancestors. These days are not just days,but they are also the presentation of our culture.

I think your blog is full of many useful information. It's very good for us. Haha...if next time we need this information, we can connect your reference directly. That would be useful. Others also can know more about the traditiona in Taiwan. I think maybe you can write more about your own opion about the topic. That would be better!!

Traditional festivals are very important for us. New year, Dragon- boat festival, and Mid-autumn festival are all the traditional festivals. I think they are interesting and have more activities in those days. In these days, all family have a reunion and go doing the special activities.
