24 Solar System Calendar
The ancient Chinese divided the sun's annual motion into 24 segments, calling each segment a specific "solar term." The solar terms were created thousands of years ago to guide agricultural production and function even now. The criteria for its formulation were developed through the observation of seasonal changes and other natural phenomena. Some rituals and festivities are associated with the terms, contributing to communities’ cultural identities. The concept of this project is to simplify the contents from the traditional Chinese lunar calendar with modern and simple design that helps people easily understand the Chinese calendar.
Rain Water is the second of the 24 solar terms used in Chinese tradition. As its name implies, this term bodes for an increase in rain starting around late February.
Solar term "Greater Heat", indicates entry into summer’s hottest period. It usually occurs between July 22 and 24.
Light Snow, which falls around November 22 to 23, indicating the snow season has begun.
