"The collection and interpretation of the seventy-two seasons of the lunar order" says: 'when it is established, it is also the beginning of construction', and it also says: 'winter is the end, and all things are collected.' It means that all the autumn crops have been collected and dried, and the animals have been hidden for hibernation. It seems that the beginning of winter not only represents the coming of winter. To put it completely, the beginning of winter means that everything collects and avoids the cold at the beginning of winter.
Tracing back to the source, the ancients' understanding of 'Li' is the same as that of modern people, which means to establish and start. However, the word "winter" is not so simple. In the ancient book "collection and interpretation of the seventy-two seasons of the moon", the explanation of "winter" is: "winter is the end, and all things are collected". It means that all crops are collected and dried in autumn, collected and put into storage, and animals have been hidden for hibernation. Therefore, the beginning of winter not only represents the coming of winter. To put it completely, the beginning of winter means that everything collects and avoids the cold at the beginning of winter
'beginning of winter' is the same as' beginning of autumn ', the ancients also used divination to see the cold and warm of winter in this season, such as' beginning of winter and sunny, a winter Ling (cold); The beginning of winter is overcast (cloudy and rainy), and the first winter is warm (warm winter). Without exception, in ancient times, on the day of the beginning of winter, the emperor personally led the three gongs and nine Qing officials to the northern suburbs to welcome the winter.
In ancient China, the beginning of winter was divided into three periods: 'first, water begins to ice; Second, the waiting ground begins to freeze; A pheasant in three seasons is a mirage. " This solar term water has been able to form ice; Land also began to freeze; The pheasant in the "pheasant man's flood is a mirage" refers to the big birds such as pheasants, and the mirage is a big clam. After the beginning of winter, the big birds such as pheasants are rare, while the big clams whose shell is similar to the lines and colors of pheasants can be seen by the sea. So the ancients thought that pheasants would become big clams after the beginning of winter.
