上元节

上元节

过了大年三十,大年初一,两周后,我们迎来了又一传统节日,元宵节。元宵节又称上元节,是中国非常著名的节日。中午,叔叔为我们准备了可口的元宵,和平时吃的汤圆有所不同,元宵是手工现做的,吃起来更有韧劲,好吃。

晚上在叔叔的安排下,我们去聚餐,餐食非常丰盛,主食吃的是饺子。过年期间吃饺子,大家总会包几个钱币在里面,吃到的硬币的人将预示着在新的一年财源广进,顺风顺水。大人说,晚上的幸运硬币概率是百分之一,幸运的是,我和子滕都在吃饺子的过程中找到了藏在里面的硬币!这意味着新的一年我们都将迎来好的开始,也鼓励着我们朝着更好的方向努力。

晚饭后,大家在外面放了烟花:冲天炮,窜天猴,二踢脚,仙女棒……很多很多,过程中也录制了很多精彩的视频,之后会和大家分享在照片视频栏目中,敬请期待。

在声声爆竹中,我们结束了一天的活动,最后想说的是:2023年正月十五,元宵节。这一天我们过得很充实,很快乐,也很难忘,难得。


华盛顿110条人生准则

华盛顿是美国建立后的第一任总统,是美国建立初期最杰出的将领,英雄人物。而他也得到了全美国人民的敬佩,从而努力建立国家,使美利坚合众国逐渐走向富强。那么是什么使华盛顿能够获得如此功勋,被世人敬仰呢?和他所接受的教育是脱不开干系的。叔叔常告诉我们,小时候的教育是非常重要的,这个阶段所接受的教育奠定了以后一生的思维方式,行为基础。

在华盛顿传中,华盛顿在小时候有这么一段经历:”乔治·华盛顿在他14岁的时候,在他的学校书中写下了110条文明规则的抄本。这些格言起源于十六世纪晚期的法国,并在华盛顿时期广为流传。这项练习现在被认为是对其性格发展的一种形成性影响,包括令人愉快的处世行为准则,正式情况下的适当行动以及一般的礼貌。”后来这110条准则被编成了书,在世界各地流传,通过阅读这110条准则,都是在告诉人们如何成为一位绅士,一位有修养的成功人士。

在读这本书的过程中,心中一直在思考一个问题,就是能否说到做到。很多人都认为让孩子阅读这些书籍,又如中国的传统文化书籍能够使孩子知书达理,成为一个优秀的人。但为什么很多孩子在家长的指示下阅读了海量的内容,却没有实质的进步呢?华盛顿的幼年时期,为什么能够秉承人生准则去做事,主要是因为他拥有这样一个环境,当时的贵族环境使他更能把准则融会贯通,从而说到做到。反观现在的儿童,生活在纷繁复杂的社会中,明白了知识,懂得了道理,可是身边没有一个人身体力行,没有人做到圣贤经典中的准则,而伴随着从众心理以及最终为了融入社会,小孩子终究不会像家长希望的那样成为一个好孩子。

我们很幸运,因为叔叔为我们营造的环境使我们可以逐渐改掉在原先社会中的不良习气,再通过叔叔的言传身教,让我们对传统文化,人生道理有了深刻的理解与行动。只有在这个环境中,我们才能够有机会成为一个好人,一个真正幸福的人。


Lantern Festival

After New Year's Eve, New Year's Day, and two weeks later, we ushered in another traditional festival, the Lantern Festival. Lantern Festival, also known as Shangyuan Festival, is a very famous festival in China. At noon, my uncle prepared delicious Lantern Festival for us, which is different from the glutinous rice balls we usually eat. The Lantern Festival is made by hand, and it tastes more tenacious and delicious.

In the evening, under the arrangement of my uncle, we went to have a dinner together. The meals were very sumptuous, and the staple food was dumplings. When eating dumplings during the Chinese New Year, everyone always wraps a few coins in them. Those who eat the coins will herald a wealth of wealth in the new year and smooth sailing. The adults said that the probability of lucky coins at night is 1 percent. Fortunately, Zi Teng and I both found the hidden coins while eating dumplings! This means that we will all have a good start in the new year, and it also encourages us to work towards a better direction.

After dinner, everyone set off fireworks outside: Sky Cannon, Sky-Changing Monkey, Er Tijiao, Fairy Stick... There are many, many, many wonderful videos were recorded during the process, and I will share them with you in the photo and video column later, respect Please look forward to.

In the sound of firecrackers, we ended the day's activities, and the last thing we want to say is: the fifteenth day of the first lunar month in 2023, the Lantern Festival. We lived a very fulfilling, happy, and unforgettable day on this day, which is rare.


Washington's 110 Rules of Life

Washington was the first president after the founding of the United States, and he was the most outstanding general and hero in the early days of the founding of the United States. And he also won the admiration of the people of the United States, so he worked hard to build a country and gradually made the United States of America rich and powerful. So what enabled Washington to achieve such feats and be admired by the world? It is inseparable from the education he received. Uncle often told us that childhood education is very important. The education received at this stage lays the foundation for the way of thinking and behavior in the future.

In Washington's biography, Washington had this experience as a child: "George Washington wrote a transcript of the 110 Rules of Civilization in his school book when he was 14 years old. These maxims originated in France in the late sixteenth century. , and was widely circulated in Washington's time. This exercise is now recognized as a formative influence on the development of his character, including the rules of pleasant conduct in the world, appropriate actions in formal situations, and general politeness." Later this The 110 principles have been compiled into a book and circulated all over the world. By reading these 110 principles, they are telling people how to become a gentleman, a cultivated and successful person.

In the process of reading this book, I have been thinking about a question in my mind, that is, whether I can do what I say. Many people think that letting children read these books, such as traditional Chinese cultural books, can make children knowledgeable and sensible, and become an excellent person. But why do many children read a lot of content under the instructions of their parents, but have no real progress? The reason why Washington was able to follow the principles of life when he was a child was mainly because he had such an environment. The aristocratic environment at that time enabled him to integrate the principles better, so that he could do what he said. On the other hand, today's children live in a complicated society, understand knowledge and principles, but no one around them practices them personally, and no one lives up to the principles in the sages' scriptures. After all, the child will not become a good child as the parents hope.

We are very lucky, because the environment that uncle created for us enables us to gradually get rid of the bad habits in the original society, and through his words and deeds, we have a deep understanding and action of traditional culture and the principles of life. Only in this environment can we have a chance to be a good person, a truly happy person.
