THE ORIGIN OF THE UMBRELLA
A long time before,there is no umbrella in the world.It’s not convenient to go out for people.Skin is exposed to the hot sun and people’s clothes get wet in rainy days.A chinese historical figure—LuBan,wanted to help people solve the difficulties
At first he bulit a pavilion at the side of the road with several carpenters.With sharp top and all sides shored up with several columns.But he was still not satisfied with achievement.He thought,if it rained constantly,people can’t stay in a pavilion all the time.
He try to find another solution.“why not minimize the pavilion so that people can take it with themselves?”He haven’t come out for a few days.Until he saw the children picked a lotus leaf upside down on the head.The lotus leaf is not afraid of the sun on his head.A good idea strikes him.Then he hurried to home and find a piece of bamboo,split into many thin strip and be in the shelter.
With it ,we can easily open,we don’t ,just to pack up.That’s what we call umbrella nowadays.
