  • Celebrated: Jun. 6 


In the Gregorian calendar, the Grain in Ear usually falls around June 5, and more often refers in particular to the day when the sun is exactly at the celestial longitude of 75°. “Mang” literally means the ripening of wheat, so farmers become very busy during this period.


Grain in Ear is one of the most important solar terms in agricultural production and is also the busiest season in a year. Therefore, there are very few customs associated with this period. Among the customs followed, the most popular are the ceremony to see the god of flowers away and taking a medicinal bath to stay healthy.
