When Cold Dew comes: A Parting of the Fall

24 Solar Terms: 8 things you may not know about White Dew[1]

As the temperature continues to drop the golden autumn seems to be coming to an end, indicating the arrival of the Cold Dew period.  

Cold Dew, known as "Hanlu" in Chinese, signifies the official end of autumn, when the dawn awakens with a wet land, and dewdrops glisten over leaves and flowers. It's much colder than the White Dew.  

The lunar Chinese calendar divides the year into 24 solar terms. Cold Dew is the 17th solar term of the year, which falls on October 8 and ends on October 22 this year.
