在大寒期间,随着寒流一路向南,天气会变得非常寒冷。尽管现代气象观测显示,在中国的某些地区,大寒期间的天气并不比小寒更冷,但是在一些沿海地区,全年最低气温仍然出现在大寒期间。

Buying sesame straw 买芝麻杆

 

Major Cold always coincides with the end of the year in the lunar calendar. In some areas of China, people always fall over each other in eagerness to buy sesame straw during this period because of the old saying, "Rise joint by joint like sesame flowers on the stem." This saying is used to describe either ever-rising living standards or making steady progress in thought, studies or skills.

大寒节气恰逢农历岁末。在中国的部分地区,这个时候人们会争相购买芝麻杆,因为老话有云:“芝麻开花节节高。”这句俗语寓意生活水平不断提高或思想、学业、技能稳步前进。
