The Lantern Festival
The Lantern Festival is also called Shangyuan Festival, Xiaozheng Yuanyue, Yuanxi Festival, or Lantern Festival. The time is the 15th day of the first month of the lunar calendar each year. The custom of burning lanterns in the Lantern Festival also has its origins in Taoism. Shangyuan means the first full moon night in the new year. The origin of the Shangyuan Festival, "Sui Shi Za Ji" records that this is due to the stereotypes of Methodism. At the end of the Han Dynasty,
The important faction of Taoism, Wudoumidao worshipped gods as heaven officials, local officials, and water officials, saying that the heavenly officials blessed, the local officials forgave sins, the water officials relieved the emperor, and the three yuans were assigned to the three officials, saying that the Shangyuan Tianguan was the first month of the year. Fifteenth birth, Zhongyuan Tiguan was born on July 15th, and Xiayuan Shuiguan was born on October 15th. The Taoists of the Wei and Jin Dynasties used the "three officialdoms" to match the time and weather, and set the fifteenth of the first month as the "Shangyuan", the fifteenth of July as the "Zhongyuan", and the fifteenth of October as the "Xiayuan", collectively known as the "three yuan" ".
