Major Cold: Welcome Spring Festival with festive flowers

Major Cold, the last of the 24 solar terms, also represents the beginning of the Spring Festival. It begins at 10:50 p.m. (BJT) on January 20 this year. It is the sixth solar term in winter, and the last one of the 24 solar terms, and often coincides with the end of the year of the lunar calendar, so there is a folk saying that warns you to "prepare for the New Year after the Major Cold."

Winter is the excellent season for flower and plant sellers, with people flocking to the plant markets to add a bit of color to their homes when the weather outside is cold and dreary. But with freezing temperatures in winter, the flowers need careful care. If you receive a chic Spring Festival flower as a gift, make sure you give it care it deserves, so it can live long and bloom beautifully in your home.
