what does this translate to:
其中 的 原因?

"among other reasons "

dude, you need to rely more on yourself. i would actually recommend that you complete an app like “hello chinese” before you try to tackle stuff on lingq.

这其中的原因 = lit.; the reason within this (referring to why the date is different)

The reason for this, I do not know.
I don’t know the reason for this.
I don’t know what the reason for this is.

nah man i want to get to the hard stuff and whatever struggles i have i ask, thats why there is lingq, i need to use it more and learn

why use the 其中 here when you could say 对这个原因, 我不知道 to mean for these reasons, i do not know?

It isn’t saying “for these reasons, I do not know” or “among other reasons”, as was suggested above.

It is saying “I don’t know the reason/s for (literally; within) this”.

That’s normal English sentence structure. Here it is switched in Chinese to; “The reason/s for this, I do not know.”

这其中的原因 = the reason/s for this

The author is saying people in Taizhou celebrate the festival on a different date than usual, but he doesn’t know why.
