Winter Solstice Today. The Winter Solstice is not only the earliest established solar term, the oldest solar term, but also the most solemn festival. "Sanli Yizong" during the Northern and Southern Dynasties: "Those who are in the middle of the winter solstice also have the three meanings: one arrives at the cathode, the two yang arrives, and the three travel to the south, so it is called the winter solstice."
In the ancient days when the climate was measured by yin and yang, the winter solstice was regarded as the "cathode of solstice", so by the winter solstice, people would live in thousands of taboos. A general principle is "immovable." In the winter solstice, "everything is closed, and the worms are in the first acupoint, so virtue is in the room." It seems that in the winter solstice, staying in the house is a virtue. It is both caring for yourself and "others."
Now, every winter solstice, the older generation always tells the younger generation to go home early in the evening, it is better not to go out.
Once into the winter solstice, people started counting nine.
