What are the 24 Solar Terms

The 24 Solar Terms, a supplementary calendar established in ancient China, first appeared in the Han Dynasty. The current "24 Solar Terms" are based on the position of the sun on the return ecliptic, i.e. the annual movement of the sun is divided into 24 equal parts, with every 15° being one equal part, and every one equal part being a solar term, starting from the beginning of Li Chun and ending at the end of Da Han.

In traditional farming culture, the twenty-four solar terms occupy an extremely important position, through which the ancients can intuitively and clearly understand the changing patterns of the seasons and climate in a year, so as to master the agricultural time and reasonably arrange farming activities.

It not only played a guiding role in agricultural production, but also influenced the ancient people's clothing, food, housing and transportation, and even cultural concepts. The twenty-four solar terms are the product of long-term observation and research on astronomy and meteorology by ancient Chinese people, and they contain a long cultural connotation and historical accumulation of the Chinese nation.

After thousands of years of development, the ancients gradually formed many unique ways of life and conventions and habits based on certain solar terms, which slowly evolved into folk customs specific to the 24 solar terms, and some even gradually evolved into composite traditional festivals, which all carry the aspiration and love of the ancients for a better life.

However, with the development of social life and the change of ideology, some festive folk customs have been gradually simplified or even disappeared, turning into a faint historical mark. Nowadays, with the revival of traditional culture, these festive folk customs with high social value should also be taken seriously.
