婦女外遊和"走百病"中國古代雖然以種種禮教對婦女進行身心束縛，但在元宵節和中秋節，均要暫時解脫對婦女的種種限制和束縛，允許其離開閨房外出參與娛樂。元宵節觀燈，往往是少女結識意中人、與佳偶相會的大好時機。元宵節期間總會出現一些愛情佳話。又據說元宵節婦女群遊，遊城牆，摸城門釘、走橋等，可治病強身，抖去晦氣，祈免災咎等，所以又叫"走百病"或"走三橋"。婦女外遊和"走百病"中國古代雖然以種種禮教對婦女進行身心束縛，但在元宵節和中秋節，均要暫時解脫對婦女的種種限制和束縛，允許其離開閨房外出參與娛樂。元宵節觀燈，往往是少女結識意中人、與佳偶相會的大好時機。元宵節期間總會出現一些愛情佳話。又據說元宵節婦女群遊，遊城牆，摸城門釘、走橋等，可治病強身，抖去晦氣，祈免災咎等，所以又叫"走百病"或"走三橋"。 Lantern ['læntən] The evening at the Lantern Festival, in the street, there will be a variety of lights.
