English Name: Sand Burying Lover Festival of Lisu Ethnic Minority in Gongshan County, Nujiang
“江沙埋情人” 是云南省怒江傈僳族自治州福贡县一带傈僳族青年的传统节日娱乐、求偶活动。每年正月初四、初五左右举行。届时,男女青年们欢聚怒江河畔,歌舞嬉戏。还要在同伴的帮助下,在沙滩上挖出沙坑,将意中人抬入“埋葬”,并装出非常悲伤、痛哭流涕的样子,唱丧歌,跳丧舞。取闹过后,才将意中人拉出。他们认为,通过这一活动,一来表示恋人间感情的真挚与深厚,二来可以将附在意中人身上的“死神”埋掉,使意中人健康长寿。 除此活动外,福贡一带的傈僳族青年还要举行“头顶射鸡蛋的”射弩比赛。比赛时,男青年身背箭包,手持弩弓,自己的心上人头顶扣一碗,碗底上置鸡蛋一枚(或头顶一木碗,碗中盛米、置鸡蛋)为靶,站于几米之外。比赛开始,男青年不慌不忙,拉弦搭箭,扣机击发,只听“啪”的一声,蛋花飞溅,心上人则安然无恙,顿时,场上爆发出一片热烈的掌声。这是一项惊心动魄、扣人心弦的比赛,是比技术、赛胆量、见真情的活动。当然,技术不精的小伙子,宁可射不中鸡蛋,也不会伤了心上人的。
