In my opinion, the Dragon Boat Festival, Mid-Autumn Festival and Spring Festival are of great traditional significance of rural culture. In my memory, these three festivals have a strong flavor of folk custom, many subtle procedures, and very particular. But in recent years, every time I rush back to my hometown for festivals, I can’t feel that kind of festive atmosphere. I breathed the smell of chrysanthemum and Lotus as much as I could, and tried hard to search for those childhood and childish memories, but what I tasted seemed to be a cup of tasteless boiled water, I am so far away from those beautiful and happy dreams that it is hard to find that pure, precipitated and bustling rural scene. The day before the Dragon Boat Festival holiday, I went to Li county on a business trip. I wanted to go back to Changsha together after the interview, but the next day was the Dragon Boat Festival. It was close to my hometown, so I had to go home to see my parents, experience the festive atmosphere and think about it. The next rainy day, I took the rural CMB to my hometown. The minibus just left the county town and was stopped by the traffic police. The traffic police got on the bus to count the number of people and overloaded eight people. Therefore, the driver was detained on the spot and put on the police car. After tossing for a while, after the overloaded personnel were transferred to the bus, the minibus drove to the hometown. As soon as I got home, my elder sister, younger brother and others played mahjong around a table, had lunch, and opened a table to fight against landlords. Before I went back to my hometown from the county, I called to learn that there was no zongzi in my family, so I bought a bag from the supermarket and cooked it for everyone to eat. Although the second sister’s family built a building, they were not short of money, and the food was also very rich. There were all kinds of ducks, fish, and chickens, but other snacks made by themselves were nothing. She said she could buy a lot of things, so she was too lazy to do it. Murakami’s neighbors didn’t make any noise either. Most of them played cards at home, and the children didn’t run out to visit. When I was young, I always washed mugwort water during dragon boat festival, which can clear away heat and detoxify. After washing it, I didn’t have a long bag. I remembered that I saw someone selling mugwort in the vegetable market in Changsha, but I didn’t see the prepared mugwort in my hometown, and mugwort could be harvested everywhere on the roadside, or cut in advance to hang up and dry, or cut it temporarily to boil water. After dinner, my parents always kept me staying overnight. I still wanted to go back to the County Hotel to stay, but the minibus was no longer available, so I had to call my friend to drive me. Sleeping in the hotel at night, I thought maybe they would wash mugwort water at night, so I didn’t think so much. Maybe now the living standard in rural areas has improved, the lifestyle has changed, and the concept of festivals has also changed. Besides going to the city to visit relatives or going out to play, the main entertainment is playing cards. Is this the diluted rural culture in the information age? Regardless of the feeling of self-happiness in childhood, there are always some things that happened in festivals that can be recalled. But now, besides mahjong and landlords, what else is there? After staying in the city for a long time, I always wanted to go back to my hometown to experience the local customs, thinking that the local customs in my hometown were still so strong, but I drove a few hundred miles back to the most typical remote villages in Chinese rural areas, it is still so pale, such a plain picture, still like the edge of the city, with well-developed transportation and numerous buildings, and even can’t see a clay tile House in 1960 s and 1970 s, I consider that I can keep some memories or cultural relics of the dwellings in 1960 s and 1970 s which are convenient to be used as a kind of rural architecture, and the scene of smoke curling and fragrant fragrance seems to be gone, the modern flavor replaces the previous strong local flavor. Compared with rural areas, I also find an opposite phenomenon, although the city provides abundant public cultural facilities and commercial entertainment places are prosperous, but the city’s awakening of traditional culture is also very strong. The archaize of architecture, the root-seeking of folk customs and the nostalgia of festivals all revive and diffuse in the city. However, in rural areas, rural culture is a desert instead. This situation is very worrying. Maybe the villagers are not satisfied with such old customs and are reluctant to follow those traditional cultures, thinking that they are very backward and self-abased as farmers, things that were thought not to be recognized by city dwellers or young people were all things that could be bought with money, so they were too lazy to do it and chose to give up or even escape. If it goes on like this, either the rural traditional culture will disappear, or the rural culture will appear in a new form of expression, or the rural culture is a nondescript thing, which will eventually be marginalized. Therefore, during the period of new rural construction, the rural culture needs to be attached great importance to, consolidated by system guarantee and rebuilt by financial investment.
