Birthday Party

Traditional culture of our country in ancient times attached high importance to the naissance and longevity, and profound longevity culture was formed thereby. As a result of it, courteous dictions as related to the longevity ceremony emerged accordingly. The so called “Five Blessings” in our country since ancient time represents good fortune, ample salary, longevity, happy life and great wealth. According to Book of History---Hongyuan, “Five blessings---the 1st day for longevity, 2nd day for good fortune, 3rd day for health, 4th day for morality and the 5th day for the end of life”. The longevity is placed at the first place. Thus it can be seen that longevity is of vital importance in the whole life of a person.

Due to aforesaid reasons, the ancients attached high importance to longevity. The longevity tale of Queen Mother of the Western Heavens and Feast of Peaches, Eight Immortals congratulating Birthday, Eight Immortals Cross the Sea and Magu Presenting Her Birthday Gift, new year paintings engraved with Pengzu and Longevity Immortal and paper-cut for window decoration and such longevity gifts as longevity noodles, peaches and couplets represent the pursuits, longings and wishes of the ancients. As a result of it, various ceremonial activities for longevity congratulations emerged accordingly.

Longevity ceremony is a ceremonial activity for birthday, which is repeated for numerous times in all life of a person. Longevity ceremony is also known as “birthday ceremony”. Furthermore, there are also such designations as “birthday celebration”, “birthday congratulation” and “longevity congratulation”. However, longevity ceremony may vary as per age and gender. Birthday ceremony for children is known as “birthday celebration” instead of longevity ceremony. It is considered that the saying of longevity ceremony is not applicable to children and teenagers, which may take years off the life. “Longevity ceremony” is applicable to people with the age over 40. However, it is not applicable to any people with the age over 50 if his or her parents are still in good health. This is due to the old saying of “All people should be filial to their parents regardless of their age”. There was division of upper, intermediate and lower longevity in ancient time, namely 100 years old, 80 years old and 60 years old. Furthermore, longevity ceremony for men and women is also different. Longevity ceremony for male and female is known as Chun Longevity and Xuan Longevity respectively.

Longevity banquet serves as the important part of longevity ceremonial activities for the people celebrating his or her birthday (elderly person whose birthday is being celebrated). At the beginning of the longevity banquet, the elderly person whose birthday is being celebrated shall be invited to the banquet with others being seated as per their seniority in the family. For longevity banquet, longevity noodles and cakes must be prepared in addition to meat, fish as well as delicacies of every kind.
