Note:

天气

There is typically autumn weather during Bailu period, when wild geese begin to migrate to the south and birds start to stock food for the long winter time. Hot summer is gone. However, it could be still warm in south China. It is different in the Yangtze River and Huaihe River valleys where it is usually humid during this period, as the saying goes: "It's unusual to see ten continuous sunny days."

白露时节,是典型的秋日天气,在这个时候大雁开始向南迁徙,鸟儿开始储备食物果冻。炎热的夏天已经过去了。然而,在中国南部依然炎热。俗话说:“能遇上连续十天晴朗已经很不寻常了。”在这段时间,长江及黄河下游地区通常表现为阴雨连绵的天气。


生活

This is also the season that people may be exposed to various diseases like nasal disease, asthma, and bronchitis. Too much seafood or cold, spicy, or greasy food may not be good for health, but food containing more vitamins is good for your diet since the weather is getting drier after White Dews.

这个季节也是人们容易感染上如鼻炎、哮喘、支气管炎等各种疾病。食用过多的海鲜或生冷食品、辣的或者油腻食物对健康都是不利的,但摄入富含更多维生素的食物是非常有益健康的,因为在白露以后天气将越来越干燥。


习俗

1.Children Playing with Swallow Cars 孩子们玩燕子车

3.White Dew Wine 白露米酒

4.White Dew Tea 白露茶
