[ 1 ] Chinese 24 Solar Terms is listed by UNESCO as an Intangible Culture Heritage of Humanity. The ancient Chinese divided the circle of the annual motion of the sun into 24 equal segments; each segment was called a 'jie qi' or solar term. Hence the 24 segments are collectively called the 24 Solar Terms. The 24 solar terms reflect the changes in climate, natural phenomena, agricultural production, and other aspects of human life, including clothing, food, etc.
