    九月 長月

    夜が長くなるので「夜長月」ともいいます。「菊」がきれいな頃なので「菊月」とも。夏の暑さが残る時期ではありますが、秋らしい行事があり気持ちの上で秋へと向かいます。

    九月九日の重陽の節句は別名「菊の節句」といい、中国では邪気を払い長寿の効能があると考えられています。 日本でも菊を飾った宴が開かれ、菊を愛でたり酒に菊の花びらを乗せた「菊花酒」を楽しんだりしました。「菊の被せ綿(きせわた)」とは重陽の節句の前夜に露よけの綿を菊の花にかぶせておき、当日に露と菊の香りが染み込んだ綿で体を拭いて邪気を払い長寿を願う、という風習があります。

    二十三日、秋分の日を中心にした前後の三日間、合計七日間が秋の彼岸と言い、最初の日は彼岸の入りといい、おはぎをいただく風習があります。春のお彼岸はぼたもちといいますが、秋のお彼岸は萩の花の季節なのでおはぎといいます。当店でも期間限定でおはぎをご用意しています。

     

    Because night gets longer, it is also called “night long moon”. “Chrysanthemum” is a beautiful time so “Kikuki” as well. Although it is a time when summer heat remains, I will head to autumn with feelings like autumn.

    The Fuyang festival on September 9th is also known as the “chrysanthemum festival”, and in China it is thought that it has the efficacy of longevity with evil spirits. In Japan, a party decorating the chrysanthemums was held, and we enjoyed “chrysanthemumai” which puts chrysanthemum petals on sake and loves chrysanthemums. “Cotton chrysanthemum cotton” is a cotton chrysanthemum cotton on the eve of Fuyang’s festival and wiping the body with cotton saturated with dew and chrysanthemum smells on the day, There is a custom that I wish for longevity for payment.

    On the 23rd, three days before and after, mainly around the Autumnal Equinox Day, a total of seven days is called Higan Coast in the fall, the first day is called Higan, and there is a custom to have a morning party. The spring ooh westerly is called rice cake, but since the fall bank of autumn is the season of Hagi flowers, it is called Okagi. We are also preparing Ohagi for a limited time at our shop.
