The Chinese Human Day

According to Chinese genesis, the goddess Nu-Wa with snake body (2852-2738 B.C.) created the world. On the first day, she created the rooster. The rooster crowing opened the door of the heaven, and then the sun, the moon and stars showing on the sky. One the sencond day, she created the dog. The barking sound of the dog opened the door of the earth. Then we have four directions of east, south, west and north. On the third day, she created the fat pig, which is for the food supply. On the fourth day, she made the goat to worship the gods of heaven and to ask gods for auspicious luck. On the fifth day, she made the big strong ox. It can do the hardship job with the powerful energy. On the sixth day, she created the horse. It can run very fast and can become the transportation. On the seventh day, she tried for 70 times to create the human with some helps from other gods. She blew out a breath on the human, and human became intelligent. She let human in charge of the six animals. Therefore, January 28, 2023 is the birthday of the Human.

The goddess made many human using mud mixed by yellow soil and water. Also she taught human about the marriage; so human can reproduce themselves. Therefore, Nu-Wa is the mother of the earth and the God of Marriage.

Almost no Chinese celebrate on this day. Some people just eat pettitoes with angel hair noodle. The long noodle stands for longevity. Once, Chinese ate seven vegetables (celery, shepherd's purse spinach, green onion, garlic, mugwort and colewort) on the human day, which can repel the evil spirits and sickness away.
