Start of Winter, (Chinese: 立冬), the 19th solar term of the traditional Chinese calendar, began this year on Nov 8 and ends on Nov 21.
It is also the first solar term of winter, which means winter is coming and crops harvested in autumn should be stored. Let's have a look at these early winter images at Shandong University during this period.
