China is a large agricultural country. Although science and technology have made great progress, we still need to pay attention to climate change in order to sow and have a satisfactory harvest. The solar term has become a very important guiding tool, and it is calculated according to the Gregorian calendar. We have to check the calendar every time to know which day it is.

early autumnal equinox and late frost fall means

the whole sentence reads: "early autumnal equinox and late frost fall are the right time for cold dew to plant buckwheat." in fact, it depends on the climate characteristics of various places. For example, in southern North China, it is a little early to plant buckwheat at autumnal equinox and a little late at frost fall. In Henan and Anhui areas south of the Yellow River Basin, If the temperature drops slowly, wheat is planted in the cold dew season. At the autumnal equinox, most parts of China have entered a cool autumn. The cold air going south meets the gradually decaying warm and humid air, resulting in precipitation and temperature drop again and again. As people often say, it is time for "autumn rain and cold", but precipitation is still scarce in some areas, so we should pay special attention to the irrigation of farmland.

what are the customs and activities

1. Sacrificing the moon: this custom is very rare today, but in ancient emperors, there were the customs of sacrificing the spring equinox, the summer solstice, the autumn equinox and the winter solstice. Later, because the date of the autumnal equinox was not fixed, I was afraid there was no full moon, so I moved to the Mid Autumn Festival on August 15 of the lunar calendar.

2. Autumn Festival: we all know that Tomb Sweeping Day is a common Tomb Sweeping Day, but some areas choose to go to the grave at the autumn equinox. On the festival day, people will hold a grand ancestor worship ceremony in the ancestral hall, and then start tomb sweeping activities. First, sweep the graves of kaijizu and Yuanzu. The whole family and the whole village have to go out. The scale is very large, and the team often reaches hundreds or even thousands of people, It expresses the remembrance of our ancestors.
