So today if we choose the traditional festival, the Double Ninth Festival is fully qualified to become the. Is an important content of the Double Ninth Festival pray for good health and longevity, with the Chinese nation's traditional respect for the elderly is very fit. As early as in the Zhou Dai, the government will have their old system. "Zhou Xia Guan, Roche" in regulation of Roche is the responsibility of the spring bird, will catch turtle dove dedicated to the emperor, the emperor will dove gave "old" (old retired government officials). Said the dove eating any food not choking, grant dove is hope that the old man can eat good drink good, healthy body. This is a speculation of future generations, not credible. More probable is "Dove" and "long" homophonic, so use dove to the elderly health and longevity. "The book of rites on order" in say, autumn moon, "Yang aging, granted a few stick, line Mi porridge diet". It means the government to take a few old issue and stick, to let people drink easy to digest porridge. Zhou Dai in these provisions about only the nobility, is not available to ordinary people. The Han Dynasty further will carry forward the nursing system. According to the "post Han - etiquette records," records, the annual mid autumn August, each county to be sent from house to house to investigate. All citizens who have reached the age of seventy, the government granted the king rod, send mi porridge. The eighty or ninety year old has more bestow. Wang Zhangchang Jiu Chi, head of carving a turtledove stick shape, so that the staff is also called "Jiu Zhang", this is the rights certificate granted by the government of the elderly, similar to today's card for the elderly. From Gansu Wuwei grinding nozzles of Han Dynasty unearthed inscribed wooden slips "Wang Zhang" the edicts, holding the king rod man free access to government officials, see no line "trend" ceremony (Trot), when can go Chi Road (for official use road), enjoy taxation privilege to do business, etc.. In Han Dynasty, the system has a far-reaching impact on future generations, each Dynasty inherited this tradition, have clear provisions on their old man. We generally put the Double Ninth Festival as a good old days today, is to inherit and carry forward the fine national tradition.
