The whole family would share the food. At this time, mother would put the pancake with bean curd and cabbage stuffing in it, and the baked taste was very good.According to the old man, eat baked things, hit ten hammer (sound meaning, the mother explained is said to treat children accumulate food, there is no scientific basis, really do not know), not all diseases, although a bit exaggerated, but also expressed people a simple good wishes!At this time the family around the fire, gossiping, eating scorched steamed buns, pancakes, talking and laughing, very warm!Sometimes it’s not all about the fire, but the warm, warm atmosphere!There is also a saying in our hometown, that is, whose fire baked more prosperous, the longer, whose day across the prosperous.So every day to the tenth, lion fire will roast until very late.In addition, there is another custom here on the 10th day of the first lunar month, that is, making dumplings at night. In my hometown, making dumplings is called making dumplings. According to folklore, the 10th day of the first lunar month is the day when a mouse marries.On this day, the elderly will tease the children by saying that they will hear the suona (Trumpet) sound of a mouse marrying a daughter-in-law while squatting in the corner with sheep dung in their mouths at night. This is of course a joke with the children, but there are really “sincere” bear children actually to verify it!As a result, of course, in addition to the smell of sheep dung in his mouth, nothing was heard, a face of confusion, which made the adults laugh out of tears, but also from another side of the meaning of the people’s hope and wishes for the harvest of grain!Bake Berlin fire, make dumplings, so that the 10th day of the hometown do not have some interesting flavor!Perhaps this is the charm of folk it!Now my father and mother have passed away, the pancake with stuffing is no longer eaten, and the “Berlin Fire” has become a history, but the memories of the “Berlin Fire”, “pinching the mouse mouth” fun, those warm and beautiful days of home, will be engraved in the rings of time, with me all my life.On the evening of the 10th day, do you have the custom of cooking lion fire?## headlines ## Headline day #
