Kite

Kite

Kite, the world's earliest human manufacturing aircraft, invented in the spring and autumn period in China, until now has more than 2000 years of history.

Kites were first used in the field of warfare. Ancient people took birds as shapes and wood as materials to make "kites" that could fly in the air. According to Hongshu, Lu Ban also made wooden kites, saying, "The public transport class made wooden kites to see Song City." In ancient China, the kite was always an important tool of communication and detective in wartime, and could take gunpowder as a weapon of war attack.

Now there are many kinds of kites, including auspicious patterns, figures, beasts, flowers and birds, utensils and some auspicious characters, folk proverbs, auspicious language and fairy tales. In modern times, kites are used as a form of entertainment, such as children's toys. However, now there are many places in China where kite festivals are held. Contestants show their unique kites to compete, which is not only a kite chase, but also an inheritance and promotion of traditional Chinese culture.
