The winter solstice, also known as rinanzhi, Dongjie and Yasui, has both natural and cultural connotations. It is not only an important solar term in the 24 solar terms, but also a traditional festival of ancestor worship in China. The winter solstice is one of the four seasons and eight festivals. It is regarded as a big festival in winter. In ancient times, there was a saying that "the winter solstice is as big as the year". The custom of winter solstice is different in content or details due to different regions. In southern China, there are customs of ancestor worship and banquets during the winter solstice. In northern China, it is customary to eat dumplings on the winter solstice every year.
The winter solstice is the 22nd solar term of the "24 solar terms". It has a Dou Zhi Zi and the sun's yellow longitude reaches 270 degrees. It is held on December 21-23 of the Gregorian calendar every year. The winter solstice is the extreme of the southbound direct sunlight. On the day of the winter solstice, the sunlight is directly on the Tropic of cancer. The sunlight is the most inclined to the northern hemisphere, and the sun height angle is the smallest. It is the shortest day and the longest night in the northern hemisphere. The winter solstice is also a turning point for the solar direct point to return to the north. After that day, it will go back. The solar direct point will begin to move northward from the Tropic of cancer (23 ° 26 ′ s), and the day in the northern hemisphere (China is located in the northern hemisphere) will increase day by day.
On the day of the winter solstice, although the sun is low and the days are short, the temperature of the winter solstice is not the lowest. In fact, because there is still "accumulated heat" on the surface, it is usually not very cold before the winter solstice, and the real cold is after the winter solstice. Because of the great difference of climate in different parts of our country, the winter of this kind of climate significance is obviously late for most parts of our country. The winter solstice marks the beginning of the cold season, from which people begin to count the cold days.
