- Jul 23, 2018 -

Today is one of China's 24 Solar Terms-Great Heat. The great heat is one of the twenty-four solar 大暑.jpgterms of the lunar calendar, when the sun is at 120°.  

During the summer heat, Chinese folks have the custom of drinking tea, sunburning ginger, burning incense, and drinking mutton soup.

The summer heat season is the hottest period of the year before and after the “Zhongfu” in the “three days”. The temperature is the highest and the crops grow fastest. At the same time, meteorological disasters such as drought, flood and wind disasters are also the most frequent in many areas.

The great heat is the twelfth solar term in the 24th solar terms of the lunar calendar, when the sun reaches 120 degrees of the yellow.

At this time, before and after the mid-volt, most of China is the hottest period of the year, and it is also the fastest growing period for hot crops. The working people of China divide the heat into three: "A humus is a firefly; a second waiting for the earth to run in the heat; three times when it rains." There are more than 2,000 fireflies in the world, divided into aquatic and terrestrial, terrestrial. The fireflies lay eggs on the dry grass. When the heat is hot, the fireflies are oozing out, so the ancients thought that the fireflies were turned into rot; the second time was that the weather began to become stuffy and the land was very humid; the third time was said to be frequent. There will be a large thunderstorm, which will weaken the heat and the weather will begin to transition to the beginning of autumn.

In the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River in the south of South China, such as the Soviet Union, Zhejiang, Anhui and other areas in the hot and rainy season, the rain is like gold.

In China's western part of China, although the highest temperature occurs, the rain is the most abundant, and thunderstorms are the most common. It is the season with the most thunderstorms.
