0 Comment(s)Print E-mail China.org.cn, January 5, 2021


The Lesser Cold, the 23rd solar term of the 24 solar terms, falls on Jan. 5-7 of the Gregorian Calendar every year. After the Winter Solstice, the cold air frequently goes south and the temperature continues to decrease. The temperature during the period from Lesser Cold to Great Cold solar terms is the lowest in the entire year. From the Winter Solstice, every nine days reflects a period of cold winter, and after the ninth "nine-day period", the weather turns warm. There is a folk saying: "The Lesser Cold is between the second and third nine-day period, with bitter cold and frozen ground", which depicts the level of coldness when the Lesser Cold comes.
