Start of Summer (Chinese: 立夏) begins on May 5 and ends on May 21 this year.
It is the 7th term of the year, and the first solar term of summer. On this day, the sun's rays reach an angle of 45 degrees to the earth. The temperature will rise quickly during this period, yet in northern China the weather remains mild, not tropical.
Start of Summer bids farewell to spring and welcomes the arrival of summer. If life is compared to the four seasons, Start of Summer is like the day when we become an adult. We cherish the memories of our childhood, and look forward to our future. Here comes our summer day.
