Is winter solstice. I remembered that when I was a child, I was forced to recite solar terms songs by my teacher. After getting familiar with them, I looked at the text and found that the winter solstice was not the winter solstice, but I thought the winter solstice was the beginning of winter. I can’t tell the doubts in my heart. I didn’t wait for the winter solstice to come. It had already fallen into ice. Isn’t it winter? This is called the solar term of winter solstice. What on earth is going on? Many years later, I finally understood that the simple understanding in my childhood was really not wrong. Astronomy really regards winter solstice as the beginning of winter, but for most areas of our country, it is obviously too late. The solar terms divided by our ancestors are profound and not that simple. According to the records, the winter solstice was the earliest solar term formulated by our ancestors, which has lasted for more than two thousand or five hundred years. The elders often say that the ancestors know astronomy above and understand geography below. They are talking about those amazing characters who have discovered the laws of the four seasons of nature from the changes of sun, moon, stars, Yin and Yang over the years, firstly, such a solar term was established, and then 24 solar terms were assigned according to geographical stars. It has been used till now, so we have to admire the wisdom of predecessors. Winter solstice positive health. The ancients said that the winter solstice: When the cathode arrives, the Yang Qi begins to grow, the Sun reaches South, the Sun reaches short, and the sun shadow reaches long, so it is called the winter solstice. Now we all know that the winter solstice is the shortest day and the longest night in the northern hemisphere. After the winter solstice, the day grows longer and the night gets shorter. Therefore, it is said that after eating the winter solstice, a day grows longer. The ancients thought that after the winter solstice, the Yang Qi gradually came into being, and the Yin Qi gradually declined, which was inherent. In Chinese traditional theory of Yin-Yang and Five Elements, winter solstice is the key solar term of Yin-Yang transformation. Combined with health care and regimen, predecessors have accumulated rich experience, believing that through the natural exchange of Yin and Yang and two Qi, the Yang Qi of the body can be stimulated to rise and the effect of physical and mental health can be achieved. Especially during the winter solstice, slight cold and severe cold, it is the coldest time of the year. More attention should be paid to the subtle changes between the body and the environment. Winter Solstice into nine. After the winter solstice, we began to count nine, and every nine days was a nine. When we were very young, father taught us to sing the song of eliminating the cold from nine to nine: Don’t make moves from nine to nine; Walk on the ice from three to nine; from May 9 to June 9, watch willows along the river; The river of July 9 is frozen, and the swallows come in August 9; In September 9 plus September 9, cattle are walking everywhere. In the cold days, seven or eight children sang loudly. No matter how cold it was, it was much warmer. I don’t know why I count nine. My father didn’t tell us. Maybe they didn’t understand either. They just taught us the knowledge that their ancestors taught them. Even now, many people still don’t quite understand that once the sunny day of jiujiu comes, their hearts will be particularly comfortable. Probably, it is also the unique creation of predecessors. Cold in Sanjiu, hot in Sanfu, so the elders often warn their children that if they want to achieve success, they must have perseverance. They practice Sanjiu in winter and sanfu in summer. Folk and even proverb cloud: three days not frozen human, Dog Days hot muggy. Being cold in three or nine years is not a cold day. Small achievements are not a success in a day. There is no good thing that can be achieved overnight in the world. Only by sweating can everything be gained. Therefore, it is the best proof that the plum blossom fragrance comes from bitter and cold. When doing things and being a person, you should not be afraid of hardship, but stand up to hardship. The winter solstice is not only one of the 24 solar terms, but also a traditional festival. In many places, the winter solstice is as big as the year, which derives many folk customs. According to records, the Zhou and Qin dynasties took winter and November as lunar January, and the winter solstice as the beginning of the year to celebrate the new year. That is to say, as a festival, the winter solstice has a history of more than 2500 years. The lunar January of the Zhou calendar is November of the Xia calendar, and there is no difference between the age of worship and he Dong. It was not until Emperor Wu of Han adopted Xia Li that he separated lunar January from winter solstice. The winter solstice festival was specially celebrated since Han Dynasty. It was held in Tang and Song dynasties and has been along with each other till now. In Jiangnan Watertown, there is the custom that the whole family gather together on the winter solstice night to eat red bean glutinous rice. Suzhou attaches great importance to winter solstice. The traditional Suzhou family will drink wine in winter solstice night. Winemaking in winter is a kind of rice wine, which is brewed by local methods with osmanthus flowers. It is sweet, refreshing and fragrant. In the cold winter, a family of old and young people sat together and ate a few cups of warm wine, which was called steadfast and delicious. Eating winter wine on winter solstice can not only drive away cold, but also express the good wishes of Suzhou people for life. Although I have lived in Suzhou for more than ten years, I really don’t know enough about these folk customs, and naturally I have less real feelings. Not only the winter solstice, each solar term has its own unique folk custom spread, but also has maintained a strong vitality, which can be said to be lasting for thousands of years. Relevant folk custom is the best interpretation of solar terms, which is inherited from generation to generation and easy to understand. It often presents differences in content and form with the change of region. We have to admire the insight and creativity of predecessors. As soon as the winter solstice passes, it seems that you can see the new year, and spring is no longer far away. Although in the cold days of Sanjiu, there is little ice and snow, no matter how much ice and snow, it will slowly go far away. After the winter solstice, the sun rises gradually, and you can still miss the warmth in your heart.
