【雲上嶺南】Chencun orange: one branch and one leaf carry profound culture

In Guangdong, when people talk to others or start a business, they always look forward to a good omen. In Cantonese, the word “orange” has the same pronunciation with the word “ji” (lucky) and is consistent with the good meaning in folk customs, so it has become a symbol of auspiciousness. During the Spring Festival, almost every family will put an orange in the most conspicuous part of the home, blessing the best wishes for the next year.

在广东,人们平常讲话办事讲一个“意头”。在粤语中,由于“桔”字与“吉”字发音相同,又与民俗好意头的好彩头相符合,所以成为了好运吉祥的代表。在春节,基本上家家户户都会在最显眼的部位摆上年桔,祈求一整年的好运。
