情報簡介


今年是「雙春兼閏月」?何時「立冬」?一本曆書便可告訴你答案。古人通過觀測天象來制定年、月、日,並將曆法、星體運行結合陰陽五行的情況撰寫成曆書,二十四節氣可告訴人們一年四季氣候的改變,而每日宜忌事宜亦為人們作行事擇日提供參考。

「曆書」又名「通書」,由於粵語中「書」與「輸」同音,所以廣東民間便將「通書」改稱為《通勝》。蔡真步堂是現時香港唯一仍編纂曆法通書的堂號,至今已經歷四代傳人。

Intel brief


How do you know this year has a ‘leaped 1st lunar month’? When will be the ‘start of winter’? A traditional calendar will tell you the answers. The ancient people charted the years, months and days by observing the astronomical phenomena. The calendar was then referenced to the movement of stars and the operation of yin-yang before compiling into an almanac. The 24 solar terms can tell the changes throughout the four seasons while the ‘daily dos and don’ts’ serve as a reference for people in selecting dates for important events.

The traditional almanac is also called ‘Tung Shu’ (The book for everything). However, the pronunciation of ‘book’ (shu) in Cantonese resembles that of ‘losing’ (shu). Hence, the folks of Guangdong started to call ‘Tung Shu’ as ‘Tung Shing’ (all winning). Choi Gen Po Tong is the only brand in Hong Kong compiling the traditional calendar. The school has passed on to the 4th generations.
