#24solarterms #Xiaoxue, or Minor Snow in English, started on November 22. It is the 20th of the 24 solar terms in the Chinese lunar calendar, followed by a new round of temperature drops around China.
Many believe there will be a lot of snowfall during the Minor Snow because the name suggests the weather. In fact, the "snow" does not literally mean snowfall. Like the Chinese solar term "Yushui" or the "Rain Water", the term describes temperature and precipitation changes during the period. Therefore, "minor snow" means the northern hemisphere's temperature declines sharply with increased possibilities for rainfall and even snowfall.
