The Culture of Cold Dew: A Parting of the Fall with Flowers

As the temperature continues to drop the golden autumn seems to be coming to an end, indicating the arrival of the Cold Dew period.  

The lunar Chinese calendar divides the year into 24 solar terms. Cold Dew is the 17th solar term of the year, which falls on October 8 and ends on October 23 this year.

Cold Dew, known as "Hanlu" in Chinese, signifies the official end of autumn, when the dawn awakens with a wet land, and dewdrops glisten over leaves and flowers. It's much colder than the White Dew.
