Minor Heat begins at 10:38 am on July 7, 2022. The “dog days”, the hottest day in one year, starts with the heat rolling in. There is a tradition of “Shi Xin” which means eating new rice and drinking new wine in some regions in China. “Eating new production” and “Eating hardship” are homophone in Chinese. Therefore, Shi Xin also refers to eating all hardship of the year to express good wishes for good weather and a prosperous life in the coming years.
