2月18日,也就是大年初七,迎来了春季的第二个节气——雨水。此时,气温回升、冰雪融化、大地回春、大雁北归,降水也逐渐增多,故而称为雨水。雨水节气期间,适宜的降水对作物的生长非常重要,正所谓“春雨贵如油”。

The second solar term of spring – Yushui (Rain Water) starts from February 18, or the 7th of the first lunar month this year. It  signals the increase in rainfall and rise in temperature. With its arrival, lively spring-like scenery starts blossoming: the waters defreeze, wild geese return from south to north, and trees and grass turn green again. Sufficient rainfall is significant to agricultural production during Yushui. As an old Chinese saying goes, the rainfall in spring is as precious as oil.

“雨水节,回娘家”是流行于川西一带的汉族节日习俗。出嫁的女儿带着丈夫一起回娘家拜望父母,送上节礼。用瓦罐细火慢煨的罐罐肉最酥最香。猪髈肉炖得软烂,加上甘蔗、红枣、桂圆、枸杞等配料,香甜滋补,包含了子女对老人的一片孝心。用红纸、红绳封了罐口,由女婿给岳父母送去,表示感恩。还要送上一对竹椅,缠上一丈二尺长的红绸带,称为“接寿”,祈求岳父母长命百岁。

“Returning to Mother’s House” is a custom of the Han people in western Sichuan province. A married woman and her husband visits her parent’s house with gifts on the first day of Yushui solar term. She’d prepare stewed pork with sugarcane, red jujube, longan, goji berries and other ingredients in a pottery jar sealed with red paper and rope. The son-in-law would present the food as a token of appreciation and gratitude, along with a pair of bamboo chairs wrapped with a four-meter red silk ribbon to pray for the longevity of his parents-in-law.

雨水节气雨量增大,植物萌芽破土而出。四川省成都市都江堰,温暖湿润竹林茂盛,雨后竹笋是大熊猫的心头好,坚韧挺拔的竹子,更造就了改变中国历史的都江堰。

Plants start to sprout as rainfall increases during Yushui. Bamboo shoots are flourishing in the warm and humid weather in Chengdu, Sichuan province: they are the favorite food of giant pandas and have played a crutial part in the construction of Dujiangyan Irrigation System that changed the history of China.
