'Ready for a journey through an ancient Chinese town - let's swipe for it. Taking a boat along the river, you can see the stilted buildings along the banks and feel being away from the noisy world. As the boat slowly floating, the water plants shake in the gentle wave, and get the time slower down to nearly ceased - you will feel to pass through a landscape painting.

🧧🧧🧧Pictures are from last year's spring festival at shanghais yuyuan garden. ➡️Continue to learn something about spring festival ⬇️ We are still in the year of the 🐓 and will enter the year of the 🐷 on the 5th of February. The Chinese spring festival is lasting more then one week and during this week there are many special days which are celebrated. It starts of with the day before the new year when Chinese getter with their relatives to celebrate the last day of the year. The night from the old year to the new year is celebrated at home and in preparation to the new year. Mostly new cloth should be worn to not bring any bad and old 'habits' into the new year. Also at the south and northern part of China prepare their specialty food to be eaten after the new year is entered at 12pm. In the north 饺子( jiaozi) or dumblings are eaten which symbolize small treasure bags which are supposed to bring good luck and fortune for the new year when eaten. They have each different fillings with incridients like vegetables, pork meat or shrimps. In south of china the people will traditionally eat 年糕 (niangao) which means literally -yearcake-. It is made from glutinous rice and mostly served in many different kinds of sweet forms. I personally prefer the jiaozi which are far more delicious😊. But that's a matter of taste. The new years night, which is followed by the moon calender and every year on a different day, is celebrated with lots or fireworks. During the following days, people will light up fireworks during the whole week, day and night (excapt for some bigger cities like shanghai where any firework is strictly forbidden). - Hope you learned something.

A short myth story of red envelopes . Red Envelope: 紅包 / 利是 / 壓歲錢 紅包 (hóng bāo) 利是 lai see -Cantonese 壓歲錢 | 压岁钱 (yā suì qián) The Eight Immortals: 八仙 (bā xiān) ———————————————————— The amount given in red envelopes never includes the number ‘4’ - that means no 4, 40, or 400 amounts - as the pronunciation of ‘four’ in Chinese sounds like the word for death. However, amounts including the number ‘8’ will bring good luck and prosperity. Go ‘8’! ———————————————————— Follow @mandarin.arts for interesting & educational posts #chinese #china #mandarin #chineseculture #chinesehistory #chineseart #chinesecalligraphy #chinesebrushpainting #chinesepainting #chinesestyle #learnchinese #chineselanguage #chinesecharacter #learnmandarin #chinesetea #中国 #中文 #学中文 #漢字 #汉语 #chinesewords #hsk #汉语 #pinyin #mandarinarts #cny #redenvelope #chinesenewyear #mythology

Made by a Chinese person, explaining China's '剩男,剩女' (shèng nán, shèng nǔ) leftover man, left over woman situation. (Men & women that never get married) The woman always marrys up one level, to a relative position of wealth, creating the lower class left-behind men. And there's a certain % of women that are 'left behind' due to following careers, or are deemed 'too ambitious' or just general age which is happening at all levels. Can these left over men & left over women find each other? ... Unlikely. #becausechina #chineseculture #thisismodernchina #tic #剩女 #女汉子 #剩男 #leftoverwomen #chinagovernment #malefemaleimbalance #marriageinchina #modernchineseculture #modernchineseproblems #nevermarried #nevergettingmarried #poorchina
