日常のHOTな最新の情報やネタをご紹介!
こんにちはTOMMY☆です!

意味も分からず何となく使っている言葉って考えると結構あると思います。

土用の丑の日!

土用って?丑の日って?なぜウナギを食べるの?
全て答えられますか?

言葉の雑学としてしっかり把握してみましょう!
毎年土用の丑の日にはスーパーはウナギで賑わいますよね!

土曜日でもないのに土用って。漢字がそもそも違いますが一体何のことを言っているのでしょうか?
しかもwiki等で調べてもなんだか意味が分からないですね!


土用とは?

土用とは…
中国の五行説に由来する言葉で、この世のすべては「木・火・土・金・水」に分けられており
一年の四季に相当する、春夏秋冬を五行で表すと、春=木気、夏=火気、秋=金気、冬=水気となります。

あれ?「土」はどうなるの?という疑問が沸いてきます。

五行で表すと、土気とは、現代で言うところの四季の繋ぎ目を意味しており、暦の上での四立、つまり「立春」「立夏」「立秋」「立冬」の前18日を意味する言葉で、土用と呼ばれていたそうです!

土用は年に春夏秋冬に合わせて4回あるって事ですね!

丑の日とは?

丑とは…
少し分かりやすくなってきます。

誰でも知っているであろう12干支ですね。
「立春」「立夏」「立秋」「立冬」の前18日を表す土用には12干支が当てはまるので、18÷12=1.5となり四立てで1回もしくは2回丑の日を迎える事になります!

四立の中の丑の日が2回ある時は一の丑、二の丑と言い、ウナギの丑の日は一の丑の日を指します。

因みに、土用丑の日は1年に6回ある計算になり、ウナギを食べる土用の丑の日は立秋前18日の丑の日って事になります。

来年の『土用丑の日』は7/19となります。

何故うなぎを食べるの?

季節の変わり目に当る四立には禁忌や風習があり、丑の日は「」のつく物を食べる習慣があり、夏の丑に日くらいには、梅雨明けとなり夏に向けてエネルギーを蓄える意味でもウナギが食べれていたそうです。
また、ウナギ以外でも土用の丑の日に食べられてい

梅干し

クエン酸の他、リンゴ酸、コハク酸、などの有機酸も含まれるため体を酸性からアルカリ性に保つ作用があり、免疫力が付き、疲労回復・便秘改善・血栓予防・糖質の代謝を促す事などが挙げられます。

うどん

うどんには、食物繊維が少なく、炭水化物の中でも消化されやすい糖質が多く、消化の良い炭水化物です。

また、うどんは食べやすく、胃の中に滞留している時間も少なく、食べ過ぎ・飲み過ぎの後や、食欲の減る夏にはぴったりの食べ物です。

うり

うりには抗酸化作用のあるビタミンCや、高血圧や高血糖を抑制してくれるβカロテン、血液を作るのに必要な栄養素である葉酸などの栄養がたっぷりと含まれていて、アンチエイジング効果が優れていて、積極的に摂取したい夏野菜です。

まとめ

何気に使っている言葉も実は知らない事ってあるものですよね!

今回ご紹介させて頂いた「土用の丑の日」に関しては、日本の文化の起源となる中国に由来する事だったり、数字を数える事が干支であるので、普通に生活していると分からないです。

知らなくてもなんら差し支えある事はありません が、知識として知っているだけで、少し海の日の前には嬉しくなったりするものですね。

また、お知り合いに「知ってる?」と聞いてみて下さい。
