Double Ninth Festival is coming in the season of sweet-scented osmanthus. It is not only a traditional festival, but also one of the four major festivals for ancestor worship. BLS organized a series of activities to let them explore the cultural context behind the festival.
In ancient times, peoplel always climbed mountains to pray for blessings and worship ancestors in Double Ninth Festival. It has been passed down to the present day and added connotations such as respecting the elderly. The teachers of the Chinese group showed the rich connotation of the festival in class, and the class masters also organized the class meeting with the theme of filial piety. Students were more confident and active in the knowledge contest on Friday with the knowledge accumulated in few days ago.
The students walked into the Double Ninth garden party in threes and fives. They played lots of games, such as throwing pot, sachets, archery, baisou picture and so on. Take three arrows, get up on the platform and shoot, how many can you hit? Choose a favorite sachet and fill it with wormwood. Who do you want to give? Students not only had a good time, but also learned about the traditional customs.
BLS has launched a Chinese calligraphy competition, combining the art of calligraphy with traditional festivals. Students express their feelings with calligraphy as the carrier, and taste the unique charm of Chinese culture in literary works and rich ink fragrance.
We do believe that the students have realized the brilliance of Chinese culture and we hope the students can gradually shape the self-confidence and identity of national culture. Students will be deeply rooted in Chinese culture, actively promote Chinese cultural exchanges, and tell China's stories on the world stage.
