May 5, 2020 is the start of the summer according to the Chinese calendar.
China’s territory is vast, so there are bound to be regional differences between the north and the south. Summer in the south introduces the rainy season and is welcomed by eating tea eggs. In the windier and drier north, noodles are used to celebrate the wheat harvest.
As summer begins, we bid farewell to the spring. To usher in the new season, the China Cultural Center in Brussels is sharing a short documentary called “Seasons of China: The Beginning of Summer”. It shows the unique charm of Chinese seasonal culture.
