Do you know which day of the year has the longest daylight, and which day of the year has the longest night? And what is its basis?
Everyone knows that a year is divided into four seasons: spring, summer, autumn, and winter, but maybe they have not heard that each season is divided into different stages. In fact, each stage has about 15 days, which is the 24 solar terms that you might have heard or read somewhere.
“春雨惊春清谷天, 夏满芒夏暑相连, 秋处露秋寒霜降, 冬雪雪洞小大寒.”
“Spring rains awaken, spring clears grainy skies” (Spring begins, with an increase of rainfall; thunders awaken insects, with an equal length of day and night clears raining skies, and early crops show their shoots).
“Summer connects heat, summer plumps grain” (Summer begins where summer crops become plump but are not yet ripe. Wheat becomes ripe and summer planting begin. Daytime is the longest as nighttime is the shortest, begins the hottest period of the year).
“Autumn placing dew, autumn chill, falling frost” (Autumn begins end hot summer. White dew is the transition from summer to autumn, temperature drops sharply. Returns equal length of day and night, weather reaches cold dew, as weather becomes colder and frost begins to form).
“Winter snow, snowy winter, minor and major cold” (Winter beings, snow begins to fall. As weather becomes colder comes heavier snow fall. Daytime is the shortest as nighttime is the longest, begins the coldest period of the year).
This is the 24 solar terms song, representing the 24 solar terms in the lunar calendar year. In fact, this is also a nature’s law derived from the changes in the annual movement of the sun.
Spring: Spring begins, Rainwater, The waking of insects, Spring equinox, Clear & bright, Grain rain;
Summer: Summer begins, Budding grain, Grain in ear, Summer solstice, Minor heat, Major heat; Autumn: Autumn begins, End of heat, White dew, Autumn equinox, Cold dew, Frost’s descent;

The fact is, the weather of each solar term has different characteristics, and there is some truth in the law of Traditional Chinese Medicine health preservation according to the 24 Solar Terms.
