Term Definition
烧头香《俗语佛源》
“烧头香”又叫做“烧头炉香”。这是一种民间的风俗,拜佛、敬神等都有。谓信徒赶早到寺、观或神祠,争上第一炉香,以示虔诚。此风俗由来已久,在宋代已盛行。宋·孟元老《东京梦华录·六月六日崔府君生日》:“二十四日,州西灌口二郎生日,最为繁盛……夜五更争烧头炉香,有在庙止宿,夜半起以争先者。”又如清·袁枚《子不语·烧头香》:“凡世俗神前烧香者,以侵早第一枝为头香,至第二枝便不敬。有山阴沈姓者,必欲到城隍庙烧头香,屡起早往,则已有人先烧矣,闷闷不乐。”又如清·俞樾《茶香室丛钞》卷十五:“(韩元英)遣一亲信仆持香往岱岳祈谢,谓曰:‘圣帝惟享头炉香。’……按此知世俗有烧头香之说,由来久矣。”(李明权)
