如果天天都是盂蘭節 If everyday is Hungry Ghost Festival


幾天前因爲有位朋友把垃圾往車的窗口丟在馬路上而被責備,

我想“嗯,很好會罵意思有公德心,很好!”

剛剛還沒有想半秒間,我馬上就“炸到”了。

因爲被責備的原因不是因爲往馬路上亂丟垃圾,

而是現在是農曆七月,盂蘭節期間,最好不要亂丟垃圾,

以避免“好兄弟”會跟着回家……


如果天天都是盂蘭節,

世界應該會非常清潔!

其實盂蘭節並不是那麽可怕,盂蘭節的目的是要我們懷念已經不在世的祖先,報答他們“前人种樹;後人乘涼”的恩惠,或是給自己一個機會補償之前他們在世時我們沒有做到的孝順。

請搞清楚節日的目的以及爲什麽我們不應該隨地亂丟垃圾。

Few days ago, a friend of mine got scolded because he threw rubbish through car's window.

i was thinking very good, you guys aware of the cleanliness and being public-spirited.

but i was shocked by the reason of him being scolded after half a second,

the reason of should not throw rubbish onto everywhere was because of during July of Lunar Calendar, when the month of Chinese Hungry Ghost Festival. To avoid followed by spirit back to our house, we shouldn't do that.

i was thinking, how clean the world is if everyday is Hungry Ghost Festival.

actually Chinese Hungry Ghost Festival is not that scary, it was actually a festival for us to remember our ancestor, pray for good wealthiness for them in heaven or hell and also a chance to give them what we didn't give while they're still alive.

so please understand the purpose of those festivals and the reasons of not throwing rubbishes everywhere.
