Speaking of Chinese traditional culture that there are, however, and let all I remember is the Spring Festival.
The Spring Festival is the most ceremonious traditional festival of the Chinese people, is a symbol of unity, prosperity, and on the new hope for the future of festival, how to celebrate this holiday, in one thousand years of history development, formed some relatively fixed customs and habits, there are a lot of handed down also. One of the custom is to eat dumplings. Before eat dumplings, of course, want to make dumplings. I to eat the delicious dumplings, then move to fit yourself.
Want to eat dumplings will make dumplings, the dumplings is not easy to do. And first before making dumplings. I poured some noodles in the bowl, took bowl poured some water in it. First water less, knead out surface picked it up and down off the surface of slag. Added some water, surface and stick in my hand. Ah, always add water is not appropriate, the light and so hard for you, wait to eat dumplings will have to wait until what time! Added a little dry flour, finally done. But a listen to mama said still have half an hour, really, I"m impatient. Surface well, rushed to the side, I can"t wait to come up with a small piece of surface to mother make dumplings before action to face knead into a slender bar. Knead the results section of thick section thin ok rub it for a long time and finally kneaded. I suddenly thought: since dumplings as stuck in the traditional Chinese culture, it must be very delicious dumplings, but must have certain difficulty. In order to eat the delicious dumplings! Then began to cut the surface into small pieces, and then continue to roll. And the top priority, rolling skin is the most difficult thing. If the thin skin dumplings easy broken, if the skin thick dumpling stuffing cooked skin not cooked. I put a small piece of a small piece of face became a cute little persimmon according to size, and ready to roll leather. I in one hand and a small cake, in one hand and a rolling pin to roll the wrappers. Ah, like mother rolling skin good hard ah, I really can"t learn in the end I like rolling pie rolling the wrappers. Although methods clumsy but the effect is good. The pack dumpling, mom gave me a my favorite pork green Chinese onion stuffing. I picked up the roll good skin beside the mother to make dumplings. Pack out after a dumplings, dumplings suddenly feel is not so difficult. Finally wrapped began to cook, I beside the pot forward to the dumplings boiled. Looked at the dumplings in the churning like pieces of white fish in the joy of the game. Dumplings are cooked! His mouth to eat dumplings the in the mind say a happy. Instantly, I think I"m close to China"s traditional culture also step.
Protecting traditional Chinese culture is of great importance to China"s cultural diversity, economic prosperity, and social development. The government in Guangdong province has made it their mission to protect Chaoju , a local form of drama that began in Chaozhou in eastern Guangdong.
In my opinion, specific measures should be taken to protect traditional Chinese culture. To start with, we should make appropriate laws for everyone to follow. Also, we should educate people about the need to protect traditional culture. The more the public knows about it, the more support we can get.
It"s time that we start treasuring our own valuable culture.
The Culture of China is home to one of the world"s oldest and most complex civilizations. China boasts a history rich in over 5,000 years of artistic, philosophical, political, and scientific advancement. Though regional differences provide a sense of diversity, commonalities in language and religion connect a culture distinguished by such significant contributions such as Confucianism and Taoism. Confucianism was the official philosophy throughout most of Imperial China"s history and strongly influenced other countries in East Asia. Mastery of Confucian texts provided the primary criterion for entry into the imperial bureaucracy.
With the rise of Western economic and military power beginning in the mid-19th century, Western systems of social and political organization gained adherents in China. Some of these would-be reformers rejected China"s cultural legacy, while others sought to combine the strengths of Chinese and Western cultures.
China is a unified nation consisting of many different ethnic groups. Fifty-six different ethnic groups make up the great Chinese national family. Because the Han people accounts for more than ninety percent of China"s population, the remaining fifty-five groups are generally referred to as "ethnic minorities." Next to the majority Han, the Mongolian, Hui, Tibetan, and Uygur peoples comprise the largest ethnic groups. Although China"s ethnic minorities do not account for a large portion of the population, they are distributed over a vast area, residing in every corner of China.
Particularly since the implementation of China"s opening and reform policy, the central government has increased investment in minority areas and accelerated their opening to the outside world. This has resulted in an upsurge of economic development in these areas. Each of China"s ethnic minority groups possesses a distinctive culture. The Chinese government respects minority customs, and works to preserve, study, and collate the cultural artifacts of China"s ethnic minority groups. The government vigorously supports the development of minority culture and the training of minority cultural workers, and fosters the development of traditional minority medicine.
The relation among China"s ethnic groups can be described as "overall integration, local concentration, mutual interaction." Concentrations of ethnic minorities reside within predominantly Han areas, and the Han people also reside in minority areas, indicating that there has been extensive exchanges among China"s ethnic groups since ancient times. With the development of the market economy, interaction among ethnic groups has become even more active in the areas of government, economics, culture, daily life, and marriage. Linked by interdependence, mutual assistance, and joint development, their common goals and interests creating a deep sense of solidarity, China"s ethnic groups resemble a great national family, together building Chinese civilization.
China has the history of more than 5,000 years and we are so proud of the profound culture. Every year, we are so looking forward to spending the holiday during the traditional festivals. They are the important part of Chinese traditional culture. But for young people, the meaning of these festival is fading away.
When young people are asked about the meaning of traditional festival, some of them have no idea. For example, some young people believe that Mid-autumn Festival is to in honor of the ancestors, or it is a day to eat mooncake. Actually, most festivals have been advocated by the commercial ads, and they show people to buy more products to spend the festivals happily. Some ads try to implant people the wrong idea about the meaning of festival, just to attract more customers.
The loss meaning of traditional festivals brings the negative side to the preserve of traditional culture. The mass media should advocate the essence of the festivals, so as to let the young generation learn more about our culture and be proud of it.
