During the Spring Festival, more and more people travel.There is an old saying called “seven not, eight not return” also began to be mentioned by everyone!So, what on earth is “seven not out, eight not back”?Is there any truth in this statement?.There is an old saying that “seven days out, eight days out”, so many people don’t go out on the seventh day of the lunar calendar and don’t go home on the eighth day.Some people even the lunar calendar 17, 18, 27, 28 these days are counted in.In this regard, some people criticize that this is a feudal superstition, is the dregs handed down from the ancestors.In fact, neither is true!Seven things can not be said is that before going out, there are seven things do not go out.These seven things are: wood, rice, oil, salt, sauce, vinegar, tea, namely the usual seven things we say open the door.Before the people who go out are often the head of the family, is the backbone of a family, therefore, must arrange the life of the home to go out.Eight does not return to say that after going out, there are eight things do not go home.These are filial piety, fraternal duty, loyalty, faith, courtesy, righteousness, integrity, and shame.These are the eight basic moral principles of the ancients. If you violate any of them, you are sorry to your ancestors and have no face to your family.China’s 5,000-year civilization is extensive and profound. Every old saying that has been handed down has its own profound meaning. It should not be labeled as a feudal superstition and beaten to death.More can not belittle oneself, forget the lessons of ancestors.You must not misunderstand “7 don’t go out, 8 don’t go home” true meaning.Going home is the best present!This motto should always be kept in mind to inspire us to face life more actively and diligently!The gold left by our ancestors is in good reason
