Saturday marks Da Shu, or the "Greater Heat", the 12th of the 24 solar terms in the traditional Chinese calendar. When the "Greater Heat" begins, half of the year has passed.

Being the last solar term in summer, it also marks that the scorching heat has reached its peak. The ancient Chinese people described the world during the period as "steaming and boiling".
