the beautiful implication of frost

the ancient poem says that "frost leaves are red than flowers in February". After frost, maple trees turn into red and yellow like fire under the wind of autumn, which is very spectacular all over the mountains. Frost also has the tradition of appreciating chrysanthemums. In ancient times, there was the saying that "frost beats chrysanthemums to open". Therefore, since ancient times, literati like to climb high to appreciate chrysanthemums and write poems about flowers. The frost season is also the time when chrysanthemums are in full bloom. At this time, chrysanthemum parties are held in many parts of China to enjoy chrysanthemums and drink wine to show their respect and love for chrysanthemums. "When frost falls, only this grass is flourishing". Therefore, chrysanthemum was regarded as "grass waiting for time" by the ancients and became a symbol of vitality.

one of the frost Legends

there are many legends about frost in Chinese folk, one of which is a small story about Zhu Yuanzhang, the founding emperor of the Ming Dynasty. When Zhu Yuanzhang was young, he was very poor and often couldn't eat. He also used to be a beggar, begging everywhere and sleeping in the open air. When the frost fell one year, Zhu Yuanzhang, who had not eaten for several days, was hungry and fainted. He rolled down the hillside. Fortunately, he was blocked by a persimmon tree and didn't fall to death. The persimmon tree was full of persimmons, and Zhu Yuanzhang had a meal, which saved his life. Later, Zhu Yuanzhang joined the army and became a leader. Once in a crisis, he dreamed of an immortal standing under the persimmon tree and giving advice for him. Only then did he get through the difficulties. Since then, the story of Zhu Yuanzhang and persimmons has been handed down. Eating persimmons on frost day has become one of the most important customs of frost solar terms.


the second legend of frost fall


it is said that the wife and daughter-in-law of the Dragon King are at odds with each other, and they are very "stubborn". Every autumn harvest season, the wife and daughter-in-law of the Dragon King quarrel over work and rest, and no one will let anyone. Like a "stubborn cow", the old dragon king and the little dragon king can't persuade each other, so they can only sigh "This is the 'double stubborn'". But after all, it's a family and can't be angry all the time. Therefore, if the mother-in-law and daughter-in-law make up within three days, there will be a clear sky on the frost day. If they don't make up, there will be no side.
