Start of Autumn on the Chinese lunar calendar begins

Liqiu, the "Beginning of Autumn," starts on August 8 this year. Though this solar term announces the beginning of the cool season, it does not bring "cool" news. It is the 13th of the 24 solar terms and the first one of autumn on the Chinese lunar calendar. One has to wait until several days after Liqiu for the temperature to drop. Those days are called "autumn tiger" in old Chinese sayings.
