24 Solar Terms -- Start of Winter

The Start of Winter, or "Lidong" in Chinese, arrives around November 7-8. It is the first solar term of winter, which means winter is coming and crops harvested in autumn should be stored up. There is a saying in China: "Eat dumplings on the Start of Winter, or your ears will be frostbitten."
