Let's talk about Chopsticks
They are a unique kind of tableware born in ancient China
It has been more than 3,000 years since Chinese people started to use chopsticks. A legend tell that Great Yu once tried to control a flood and passed by his home three times, each time without stepping inside. He fed himself in the fields but his soup was too hot to let him use his hands,so he took some branches to pick the meat and rice. That’s how the chopsticks were invented. Even though this is not the official story, it looks to be a reasonable legend.
Many countries in the world are influenced by China. In Asian countries like Korea and Japan, chopsticks are commonly used as eating utensils. Along with the wide spread of Chinese cuisine, an increasing number of westerners have learned to use them as well.
Even the word “chopstick” itself has a lot of traditional cultural connotations. As a Chinese saying goes, one chopstick can be broken easily but ten together will stay as solid as iron. It means, people who are weak individually can become strong if they are united.
