English Name: Wuxi Festival or Daguonian Festival of Pumi Ethnic Minority
大过年又叫吾昔节,是普米族一年中最隆重的节日之一,一般从腊月二十九祭祖先、吃年饭到正月初七过完人的生日为止,要七八天时间。大年初一早上,老人要向宗巴拉(神台)烧香祈祷,祭祀祖先。凡年满十三周岁的男女儿童,要举行“穿裤子”、“穿裙子”成年礼仪式。除此外,还有上山打猎、绕山放牧、玩磨秋、祭山神、跳锅庄等活动。

吃完除夕团圆饭后,年满13岁的男孩子、女孩子,按性别各聚一处,通宵狂欢。待东方发白,各自回到自己家中,由家里人为他们举行“穿裤子”或“穿裙子”成丁仪式。澜沧江畔的普米族在如果是女孩,她便走到火塘右前方的“女柱”旁,双脚分别踩在猪膘和粮食袋上,猪膘象征财富,粮袋象征丰收;右手拿耳环、串珠等首饰,左手拿麻纱、麻布等日用品,象征妇女有物质享受的权利和承担家庭劳动的义务。接着母亲把女孩的麻布长衫脱下,换上短衣,穿上百褶裙,系上一条绣花腰带。如果是男孩,他便走到火塘左前方的”男柱”旁,双脚踩在猪膘和粮食袋上,右手握尖刀,左手拿银元,银元象征财富,尖刀象征勇敢。然后由舅父把男孩的麻布长衫脱下,换上短衣,穿上长裤,系上一根腰带。仪式过后,这些男孩、女孩才算长大成人,才有资格参加正式的社交活动。
