Minor Snow

  • Celebrated: Nov. 22 

In the Gregorian calendar, the Minor Snow usually falls around November 22, and more often refers in particular to the day when the sun is exactly at the celestial longitude of 240°. As its name suggests, the Minor Snow is when snow begins to fall, the weather becomes cold, and the frost arrives.


After the Minor Snow, the weather quickly gets cold and dry. Meanwhile, it is also the best time to make preserved meat. Many farmers begin to make sausages and preserved meat in preparation for the spring festivals. In some parts of southern China, people follow the tradition of eating Ziba (glutinous rice wrapped in lotus leaves), a special dish consecrated to the god of cattle in ancient times.
