What exactly is " 立春" ? 


According to : 漢典黄曆

介紹

立春,是二十四節氣之一,又稱“打春”,“立”是“開始”的意思,中國以立春為春季的開始,每年2月4日或5日太陽到達黃經315度時為立春。 
古人將立春定為24個節氣之首。立春之日,晚上七點時仰望星空,可見北斗七星的斗柄正指向東北,即方位角45度的地方,古人稱為艮(八卦之一)的方向。
立春的“立”表示開始,“春”表示季節,故立春有春之節氣已開始之意。農諺有“春打六九頭”、“幾時霜降幾時冬,四十五天就打春”之語,從冬至開始入九“五九”四十五天,因而立春正好是“六九”的開始。

由來

立春作為節令早在春秋時就有了,那時一年中有立春、立夏、立秋、立冬、春分、秋分、夏至、冬至八個節令,到了《禮記?月令》一書和西漢劉安所著的《淮南子?天文訓》中,才有24個節氣的記載。
在漢代前曆法曾多次變革,那時曾將24節氣中的立春這一天定為春節,意思春天從此開始。這種叫法曾延續了兩千多年,直到1913年,當時的國民政府正式下了一個檔,明確每年的正月初一為春節。
此後立春日,僅作為24個節氣之一存在並傳承至今。

習俗

立春亦稱“打春”、“咬春”,又叫“報春”。這個節令與眾多節令一樣有眾多民俗,有迎春行春的慶賀祭典與活動,有打春的“打牛”和咬春吃春餅、春盤、咬蘿蔔之習俗等。
從歷史文獻記載來看,我國歷朝歷代的迎春儀式隆重而浩大。此時的立春已經超過了農曆24節氣只標示節令與氣候的功能,而是已經被當成一個節日了,因此在歷史上便演化出了許多圍繞立春而舉辦的活動及民俗,如“春娃”、“春鞭”、“春捲”、“打春”、“春酒”、“春牛”等等。
咬春是指立春日吃春盤、吃春餅、吃春捲、嚼蘿蔔之俗,一個“咬”字道出節令的眾多食俗。春盤春餅是用蔬菜、水果、餅餌等裝盤饋送親友或自食,稱為春盤。

養生

飲食調養方面要考慮春季陽氣初生,宜食辛甘發散之品,不宜食酸收之味。《素問藏氣法時論》說:“肝主春,……肝苦急,急食甘以緩之,……肝欲散,急食辛以散之,用辛補之,酸瀉之”。過了立春就意味著春天要到了,萬物生髮,一派生機勃勃。
春季養生要順應春天陽氣生髮,萬物始生的特點,注意保護陽氣,著眼於一個“生”字。按自然界屬性,春屬木,與肝相應。肝的生理特點主疏泄,在志為怒,惡抑鬱而喜調達。有目的地選擇一些柔肝養肝、疏肝力理氣的草藥和食品,草藥如枸杞、郁金、丹參、元胡等,食品選擇辛溫發散的大棗、豆豉、蔥、香菜、花生等靈活地進行配方選膳。
在春季精神養生方面,要力戒暴怒,更忌情懷憂鬱,做到心胸開闊,樂觀向上,保持心境愉悅的好心態。同時要充分利用、珍惜春季大自然“發陳”之時,借陽氣上升,萬物萌生,人體新陳代謝旺盛之機,通過適當的調攝,使春陽之氣得以宣達,代謝機能得以正常運行。

  3. Hi admin,
    I really like it, I have also a blog which is related with you, which is about house investor.
    if the house gets sold, a portion of the sale will have to go to the broker thus leaving you with less profit on the deal
    it may also be costly on your part especially if you will need to have it printed on newspapers and the like.
    house investor
