Legend has it that a long time ago, a monster called Nian Beast suddenly appeared in the world. Whenever the New Year comes, it will go to a village to eat people. So when the new year is approaching, people have to move to the mountains to escape from disasters.
According to the legend of the Nian Beast, on New Year’s Eve, when a beggar was going down the mountain to beg, he saw a brightly lit house and ran over. It turned out that the family was tidying things up and going to hide in the mountains to hide the Nian beast.
The beggar hurriedly begged: “Do your best, give me something to eat!”
“We are all in danger of protecting ourselves, so you should run for your life!”
“Please, I’m so hungry.” The beggar was so hungry that he could barely speak.
All right. “The hostess was a little soft-hearted, she hurriedly brought some snacks from the house, and said to the beggar: “Hurry up and run for your life, the Nian beast is coming soon. ”
At this time, Nian Beast has come to the door. The hostess quickly slipped into the house and hid. However, the fierce Nian beast turned the house upside down and approached the hostess step by step. Suddenly, a “crackling” sound came from nowhere, and I saw the beggars are desperately setting off fireworks and firecrackers. Nian Beast didn’t know what it was, so he ran away in fright.
The news spread that Nian Beast was afraid of fireworks and firecrackers, and the villagers returned to their homes one after another. Therefore, whenever the New Year comes, people will set off fireworks and firecrackers in order to obtain a peaceful New Year.
