When will the weather begin in 2018
The number nine starts from the winter solstice and the number nine starts from December 22, 2017 in 2018.
Number nine, also known as winter nine, is a Chinese folk solar term. The number nine starts from the winter solstice in the late December of the lunar calendar. There is no exact information about the origin of the custom. But it was popular, at least in the northern and Southern Dynasties. Liang Daizong's Jingchu chronicle of the age of Jin and Chu said: 'it is customary to use winter solstice days and ninety-one days for the cold. 'count nine cold days, that is, from the winter solstice, count one' nine 'every nine days, until' nine nine 'eighty-one days, and' nine peach blossom blooming ', the weather will be warm. As a matter of fact, it's' 99.19, and cattle are walking everywhere '-- 90 days in total, counting nine days.
In Chinese traditional culture, nine are extreme numbers, which are the biggest, most and longest concept. Nine nines, or eighty-one, are more than the maximum. The ancient Chinese people believed that after the winter solstice, spring must have arrived.
Jiujiu Xiaohan song
The winter solstice "nine nine nine cold songs", commonly known as "Nine Nine Songs", which is widely spread among Chinese people, vividly records the climate and phenology changes between the winter solstice and the next spring equinox, and also expresses some laws of agricultural activities. It is widely said that "the song of eliminating cold in the Ninth Five Year Plan"
"In 1929, I didn't do it,
Walk on the ice,
Look at the willows along the river,
Seven nine rivers open, eight nine swallows come,
Nine nine and one nine, and the cows went all over the land. '
Due to the different cold and warm climate, there are some differences in the nine nine songs of different places, such as:
'1929 no action;
Three nine four nine edge Ling go;
Fifty-nine and a half, Ling qiaosan;
In spring, he beat 69 heads, took off his coat and changed into a cow;
7963, pedestrians wear wide clothes;
Eight or nine days without ploughing;
Nine nine poplars are in bloom. I will not come in the future. '
There are many customs of 'number nine'. The 'Nine Nine Songs' is the most extensive and long-standing. These ballads make use of the phenological phenomena of nature to vividly reflect the law of weather change in the ninth middle school.
As far as most parts of our country are concerned, the weather is not the coldest after the end of September, but just '1929, can't reach out'. At the end of April 9th, it was almost the solar term of "severe cold", so we said "September 9th, freezing cats and dogs". After the May 9th Movement, the earth gradually returned to spring, and the weather gradually warmed from cold, so 'may 969, watching willows by the river; September 1989, walking in single clothes'. By September 9, it's the solar term of "shock pad", so "hearing thunder in September, the sound lasts".
By the Ming Dynasty, the custom of painting nine appeared. The so-called picture is actually a picture of calculating the warm spring date after the winter solstice. "A brief introduction to the scenery of the imperial capital" in the Ming Dynasty says: 'on the winter solstice, one branch of plum is painted, one of eighty petals. Day dye a petal, and nine nine out of the petals, then deep spring, said nine nine cold map. In addition, the Qing Dynasty also had "nine nine nine cold dispelling poetry map", in which there were four sentences every nine days, a total of thirty-six sentences, ranging from "Three Emperors governing the world" in ancient times to "sitting in Jinluan in the Qing Dynasty", which can be called an elegant historical "memorabilia".
