the meaning of 24 solar terms light snow

light snow solar term is the 20th solar term. On November 22 or 23 of the Gregorian calendar, the sun reaches 240 ° of the Yellow meridian. Light snow indicates the starting time and degree of snow. Like rain, grain rain and other solar terms, it is a solar term that directly reflects precipitation. In ancient China, light snow was divided into three periods: "first, the rainbow is hidden; second, the weather rises and the earth's atmosphere drops; third, the earth is blocked into winter." entering this solar term, the northwest wind in vast areas of China began to become a regular visitor, and the temperature dropped gradually below 0 ℃, but the earth is not too cold. Although it began to snow, the amount of snow was small, so it was called light snow. At this time, Yin Qi drops and Yang Qi rises, resulting in the impassability of heaven and earth, the non intersection of yin and Yang, the loss of vitality of all things, and the occlusion of heaven and earth into severe winter. The first snow will appear in the area north of the Yellow River, which reminds people that it is time to keep warm from the cold, otherwise it is easy to be infected with diseases.
