Notes:

  1. The lantern festival/ Shangyuan festival: So this was the first full moon in the year (of the lunar calendar) which means the 15th of the first month of the year according to the lunar calendar. It got it’s name because the people would hang up lanterns to make wishes. The four activities mentioned in the drama are just a few that happens:  1) Welcoming Zigu: Zigu  was a poor but kind girl who died in poverty and to commemorate her and remember her kindness, women would make a female toy, Zigu would talk to it, do housework around her. 2) Another is offering sacrifices: like putting preparing wine and meat and putting it by your doorstep. 3) solving lantern riddles: Riddles will be written on bits of paper and stuck on colorful lanterns. Often beautiful lanterns will be given to the ones who solve the most or the hardest riddles. 4) Rid the rats: This begun by families who have silkworms as rats were pests who ate the silkworms. They would offer lots of porridge for the rats so that the rats won’t eat the silkworms.
