Birthday Noodles 长寿面

1 dish 1 day No.7 一日一食

The tradition in China is that birthday girl/boy has to eat noodles on her/his birthday. Noodles are called “longevity noodles”. “Longevity noodles” are long and thin noodles that represent the longevity of the birthday girl/boy. In China, eating longevity noodles has a history of more than one thousand years. The main reason is that “noodes (面mian)” is similar to “life(命ming)” in pronunciation. And long noodles means long life. Wish me a healthy and happy long life!

在中国,过生日的传统是寿星要在生日那天吃面,面条被称为“长寿面”。“长寿面”是一种细细长长的面线,手工制作只有一根,代表寿星长命百岁。在中国,吃长寿面已经有了上千年的历史。主要是因为“面”跟“命”发音接近,面长则意味着命长,寓意长命百岁。祝愿我健康快乐长寿!
