Greater Heat of Chinese lunar calendar

"Greater Heat," or Da Shu, is the 12th of the 24 solar terms in the traditional Chinese calendar. It's also the last solar term of the summer. Crops grow the fastest during this period. The weather can get so hot in some places that it feels like one is in a sauna.
