Will it rain in the winter solstice of 2020 be a warm winter? How many months is it usually
winter solstice is a solar term in winter and an important festival in China. There are many cultures in the winter solstice. Will it rain in 2020 be a warm winter? What month is the winter solstice usually in? Let's understand this solar term together with the old yellow calendar!
is the rain in the 2020 winter solstice a warm winter: there is not necessarily a saying among the people that it is a warm winter after the rain in the winter solstice, but it is only for some areas. Because the winter solstice solar terms themselves are unified, but China has a great span from east to west, north to south, and the weather and climate are obviously different every hundreds of kilometers. For example, there is a saying in Suzhou that "the rainy stars in the winter solstice are unknown, and it is difficult to walk with heavy snow one after another", which means that if it rains in the winter solstice, the next winter will be cold.
the winter solstice is usually a few months: the December winter solstice, as a festival, has a history of more than 2500 years. According to records, in the Zhou and Qin Dynasties, winter and November were the first month and the winter solstice was the beginning of the new year. The book of the Han Dynasty says: "the winter solstice is full of Yang, and you have a long way to celebrate..." that is to say, people first celebrated the winter solstice to celebrate the arrival of the new year. The ancients believed that since the winter solstice, the Yang of heaven and earth began to flourish and become stronger, representing the beginning of the next cycle, which was a auspicious day. Therefore, later, the customs of ancestor worship and family dinner during the Spring Festival often appear in the winter solstice. The winter solstice is also known as "Xiaonian". First, it shows that the new year is approaching and there are not many days left; Second, it shows the importance of the winter solstice. The winter solstice as a festival originated in the Han Dynasty and flourished in the Tang and Song dynasties. The first month of the Zhou calendar is November of the summer calendar. Therefore, the first month of the Zhou Dynasty is equal to our current November, so there is no difference between new year worship and winter celebration. It was not until Emperor Wu of the Han Dynasty adopted the summer calendar that he separated the first month from the winter solstice. Therefore, it can also be said that the special "Winter Solstice Festival" has existed since the Han Dynasty and flourished in the Tang and Song dynasties.https://www.dailyq-a.com/Culture/30222.html
