Cold Dew is the 17th of the twenty-four solar terms and falls on October 8 or October 9 every year. That means it’s colder than White Dew and the dew is turning into frost.
At this time, the temperature in most parts of China is much lower than during the White Dew. The dew will be bigger and colder and the rain will be less. Autumn crops will ripen.
During this solar term, people can clearly feel the change in temperature difference. The crystal clear dew was cold and condensed, reflecting the continuous drop in temperature. As the temperature in the north drops, geese line up and move south, and chrysanthemums are gradually blooming.
Chrysanthemum is the iconic flower of Han Dew. In order to prevent autumn dryness, many areas in China have the custom of drinking chrysanthemum wine.
