Jingzhe, known as "Qizhe" in ancient times, is the third solar term in the 24 solar terms, and also the beginning of the prime month of the Ganzhi calendar. The time point is around the first day of February in the lunar calendar (between March 5-6 in the Gregorian calendar), when the sun reaches the Huangjing 345 & deg. "The moon makes seventy-two waiting for solution": "February Festival & hellip & hellip; everything comes from the earthquake, and the earthquake is thunder. So it's called" Jingzhe ". It's the Jingchong that leaves. '
"Spring thunder makes everything grow". It's a good sunny day in September, when the temperature rises and the rain increases. In addition to the fact that the northeast and northwest regions are still covered with silver makeup in winter, the average temperature in most regions of China has risen above 0 ℃, the average daily temperature in North China is 3-6 ℃, and the temperature along the Yangtze River and South China is above 8 ℃, while the temperature in southwest and South China has reached 10-15 ℃, which has long been a melting spring.
At this time, the temperature picked up quickly, and spring thunder gradually appeared in most areas of the Yangtze River Basin. In most areas of South China, the spring thunder can be heard from rain and hibernation all the year round, while in the northwest of North China, except for a few years, the thunder usually doesn't come until the Qing and Ming Dynasties, which is the latest area in most areas of South China.
Sacrifice white tiger to resolve right and wrong
According to Chinese folklore, white tiger is the God of tongue and right and wrong. Every year, it will come out to look for food and eat people. In this year, it is often attacked by evil villains, which will block your future development and cause all kinds of troubles. In order to protect ourselves, we sacrificed the white tiger on the day of hibernation.
Jellyfish eat pears
In the folk, there is a custom of "startling insects and eating pears". When did Jingzhe eat pears come from? There is no trace to find. However, there is a story handed down from generation to generation among the people in Qixian County. Eating pears today is to let you not forget your ancestors and strive to start your own business. Later, people in Xikou followed the example of eating pears. Most of them had the idea of "starting a business from home". Later, they also ate pears in Jingzhe day. They also had the idea of "striving for glory".
The sound of thunder is the cause of the sting. The ancients imagined that the God of thunder was a bird beaked, winged God. He held a hammer in one hand and hit many drums around him in one hand, making a rumbling thunder. On the day of Jingzhe, there is thunder god hitting the sky drum in the heaven court. The world also uses this opportunity to cover the drum skin.
Express your inner resentment
Many people deify "beating villains". In fact, it's just a folk custom. The purpose of beating villains is to drive away the villains around and express their inner dissatisfaction by beating the paper dolls representing the opposite person. The purpose of fighting villains is to hope that they will retreat and express their inner resentment.
The recovery of all things after hibernation is the season of spring, but also the season of various viruses and bacteria. During hibernation, the Qi of liver and Yang of human body rises gradually, while the Yin and blood are relatively insufficient. Health preservation should follow the rising of Yang and the characteristics of all things, so that their spirit, emotions and Qi and blood can also be as open and vibrant as spring.
From the aspect of diet, drinking, eating and living in the season of hibernation should be in accordance with the nature of the liver, help the temper, and make the five viscera peaceful. It's better to eat light food rich in plant protein and vitamins and less animal fat. Can eat duck blood, spinach, aloe, radish, balsam pear, agaric, celery, rape, yam, lotus seed, tremella and other food.
As the spring is corresponding to the liver, if not properly maintained, the liver may be injured. Modern epidemiological investigation also confirmed that jellyfish is a season with high incidence of liver disease. In addition, such as influenza, meningitis, chicken pox, herpes zoster, epidemic hemorrhagic fever, etc. are prone to outbreaks in this solar term, so we should strictly prevent such diseases.

The origin of Jingzhe
Traditionally, it's spring, the third solar term. That is to say, for a period of time from 345-deg; to 360-DEG; (0-DEG); of the ecliptic, the sun is regarded as beginning on March 5 (or 6) and ending on March 20 (or 21) every year, about 15 days. At this time, the direct solar point moves from 5 & deg; 57 & prime; s to the equator. In a narrow sense, it refers to the time when the sun passes through the Yellow meridian 345-deg; on the celestial sphere at the beginning of hibernation, that is, March 5 (or 6).
Since ancient times, the working people of our country have attached great importance to the solar term of hibernation, which is regarded as the beginning of spring ploughing. At this time, the temperature and ground temperature gradually increased, the soil began to thaw, and the rain increased. Most areas of our country have entered the spring farming season. Farmers everywhere scrambled for the spring farming preparation during the farming season, and there was a busy scene in the fields and greenhouses. There are some folk proverbs, such as "after the festival, the hoe will not stop", "after the spring, the field will be turned over and the last dung will be won", "after the spring equinox, the earth will be clear", "when the spring thunder rings, the farmer will turn around and be busy" and so on.
In the folk, there is a custom of "startling insects and eating pears". At first, among the people, eating pears means not forgetting our ancestors and striving to start a business and glorify our ancestors. Later, people in Xikou followed the example of eating pears. Most of them had the idea of "leaving home to start a business". Later, they also ate pears in Jingzhe day, and also had the idea of "striving to honor the ancestors".
In ancient times, people would hold incense and wormwood and smoke the four corners of their homes to drive away snakes, insects, mosquitoes, rats and mildew. Over time, it gradually evolved into the habit of beating opponents and driving away bad luck, the predecessor of "beating villains".
When the insects start to sting, the earth warms up, and all kinds of animals in the nature begin to come out for activities and reproduction. Naturally, the insects we don't like very much begin to hang around in front of us. After hibernation, wear a sachet to calm your mind and dispel insects.
