Minor cold or “Xiaohan” in Chinese, the 23rd of 24 solar term, usually arrives around January 5-7. This solar term welcomes China's coldest days, known as the Sanjiu period. During this solar term, Chinese people begin preparing for the Spring Festival by writing Spring Festival couplets, making paper decorations for window decoration, and buying lanterns and firecrackers.
