Lesson Transcript

過冬
有句老話——冬大過年。意思就是說,過冬比過年還要重要。我也不知道這句話的由來是甚麼,雖然在現在,這句話也不一定應驗,大多也是嘴上說說,但是可以從中看出冬至在廣東人的歷史地位有幾重要,我記得父輩的公司到了過冬這一天還都會特地放假,連小時候的學校也會提早放學,讓大家早早回家食飯團聚。
過冬的一般習俗同廣東人其它節日的習俗一樣,吃雞吃鴨,加菜團聚——一切都離不開吃。21號是冬至,也即是正式過冬。廣東人在這天都會拜神、拜祖先,晚上一家人吃個飯,雞、魚都少不了,有些還會飯後吃幾個湯圓。冬至的那頓飯很有意思,我媽媽說必須是很豐富,意味著來年的豐收,為新年做準備。從小在廣東人的圈子裡就覺得過冬很有氣氛,還有“過完冬至就過年”一說,其實說白了就是為過年做好準備的吧!
