In Chinese mythology legends, there is a monster called “”Nian””, also known as “”Xi””. “”Nian”” has lived in the bottom of the sea for many years, and only climbs ashore every New Year’s Eve, devouring livestock and harming people’s lives. Over time, people gradually discovered that the Nian beast is afraid of three things, namely red, firelight and loud noises; so later people would gather together when the New Year’s Eve was coming, and stick red paper (later gradually changed to peach amulet). Or sticking red couplets), hanging red lanterns, setting off firecrackers, etc., the purpose is to drive away the Nian beast. After the beast was driven away, people would always happily say to each other: “”It’s been another year.”” Slowly, the saying of the New Year came into being, and the custom of the New Year appeared. This “”Nian”” was created with this mythical story as the background. 2022 is the year of the tiger in China, so the tiger is used as the driver, and the implication is to drive away the current global epidemic.
