Halloween Special 万圣节特辑 The Origin of Chinese Zombies 中国僵尸的由来

中国西南地区有着“僵尸”的传说。

zhōng guó xī nán dì qū yǒu zhe “ jiāng shī ” de chuán shuō。

There is a folklore of zombies in Southwest China.

 

很多那里的老农民说,曾看到过有尸体跳着走过山路。
hěn duō nà lǐ de lǎo nóng mín shuō , céng kàn dào guò yǒu shī tǐ tiào zhe zǒu guò shān lù 。
Many old farmers there claimed that they used to see jumping corpses in the mountain roads. 
一种解释是,古时候很多西南人外出务工,客死他乡,他们的家人只能请人把他们的尸体运回家乡。
yì zhǒng jiě shì shì , gǔ shí hou hěn duō xī nán rén wài chū wù gōng , kè sǐ tā xiāng , tā men de jiā rén zhǐ néng qǐng rén bǎ tā men de shī tǐ yùn huí jiā xiāng 。
One explanation is that, in the ancient time, many southwest people left their home to seek jobs and died in a strange land. Their families had to ask a “corpse carrier” to bring their bodies back to their hometown. 
西南地区山路崎岖,运送尸体的人为了搬运起来更省力,会把尸体竖立着捆在竹子上搬运,从远处看就像是尸体在跳动。
xī nán dì qū shān lù qí qū , yùn sòng shī tǐ de rén wèi le bān yùn qǐ lái gèng shěng lì , huì bǎ shī tǐ shù lì zhe kǔn zài zhú zi shàng bān yùn , cóng yuǎn chù kàn jiù xiàng shì shī tǐ zài tiào dòng 。
Because of the mountain roads were rugged and steep in the southwest, the corpse carriers tied the bodies to the bamboos, than lined them erectly, so that they they could carry the corpses more easily, and thus, from a distance, it looked like that the corpses were jumping.
