According to legend, there was a monster called “year” in ancient China. “Every year” has lived in the bottom of the sea, and he climbed ashore every New Year’s Eve, swallowed livestock to hurt his life.
Therefore, on the day of New Year’s Eve, people in the village villages help the elderly to escape to the mountains to avoid the harm of the “year” beast.
On New Year’s Eve, people in Taohua Village were helping the elderly to take refuge with the young mountains. There was an old man from outside the village. He saw that he had a crutch of his hand, the arms were put on the bag, and the silver had elegant.
Some of the folks closed the door, some packed their clothes, some gloryed sheep, and people shouted everywhere, and they hurriedly panicked the scene. At this time, who has the heart to take care of this begging old man.

It turns out that “year” is most afraid of red, fire and bombing. At this time, the mother -in -law’s house was wide open, and I saw an old man in the courtyard laugh in the red robe. “Nian” was shocked, and the wolf escaped.
The next day was the first day of the first month. People who came back from refuge were surprised to see the village. At this time, my wife suddenly realized, and hurriedly described the promise of begging the old man to the folks.
The folks embraced their wife’s house together, and I saw red paper on the house of her mother -in -law. A bunch of unfamiliar bamboo in the courtyard was still “slamming”, and several red wax candles inside the house were still out of light …
