The traditional Chinese lunar calendar divides the year into 24 solar terms. More than 2,000 years ago, ancient Chinese created the calendar based on observations of the sun's movement. Nowadays, the 24 solar terms not only apply to farming, but also guide Chinese people in everyday life.
In 2016, the 24 solar terms were included in UNESCO's Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
