the winter solstice is the winter solstice, also known as the winter festival, sub year old, etc. It was a big festival in ancient times. There was a saying that the winter solstice was as big as a year. The ancients believed that after the winter solstice, the days were longer and longer day by day, and the Yang Qi picked up, which was not only the beginning of the solar term cycle, but also an auspicious day, which should be celebrated.


during the winter solstice in the imperial palace of the Qing Dynasty, the emperor had a grand ceremony to worship heaven, which was called "the suburban sky of the winter solstice". All officials in the Palace should present a ceremony of congratulation to the emperor, and all officials should congratulate each other, just like New Year's day. Since the winter solstice, it has entered the "count nine" cold day. From the winter solstice, the palace began to fill in the "99 cold elimination map". Why is it called "99 cold elimination map"? That's because the nine characters on the picture are nine paintings. From the winter solstice, we describe one stroke every day. After each word, it will be 19. After nine "nines", it will be exactly 81 days, that is, "out of nine". At that time, the flowers will bloom in spring. This custom was quite popular in the court of the Qing Dynasty. Emperor Daoguang personally wrote the nine double hook hollow words "weeping willows in front of the pavilion, cherish the spring breeze", so that the ministers painted red day by day and filled in a picture. Emperor Kangxi and his beloved sun Hongli (later Emperor Qianlong) painted a picture of eliminating cold in the palace for winter recreation. Until now, on the partition fan of the Yanxi Hall of the heart nourishing Hall of the Forbidden City, there is still a picture of the 99 cold elimination. On the day of the winter solstice, Fangshan made a special picture of 99 cold elimination in Yilan hall. Accompanied by Ge Ge, guests can personally pick up the brush and draw the first brush according to the custom of the winter solstice in the palace to celebrate the arrival of the winter solstice.
