This folk song vividly describes the changes in weather from hot summer to cool autumn.

The first nine-day begins when the Summer Solstice comes, people cannot leave their fans.

During the second nine-day period, taking hats off and wearing voile clothes.

During the third nine-day period, sweat drops when people step out of their houses.

During the fourth nine-day period, getting soaked with sweat.

The fifth nine-day, weather is as hot as a tiger.

The sixth nine-day, enjoying the cool in temples.

The seventh nine-day, starting covering double coverlet.

The eighth nine-day, looking for quilts in the middle of the night.

The ninth nine-day, preparing to put on cotton-padded clothes.

Due to the vastness of China and global warming, this folk song may not be suitable anymore. But weather becoming hotter and hotter after Summer Solstice is still the trend.

Many couplets about Summer Solstice are natural in words but exquisite. One famous couplet goes, "If there are thunders in Summer Solstice, the summer following will be very hot; if there is no rain in Double-ninth Festival, weather in the winter following will be sunny."

There is another couplet that goes, "Tomb-sweeping Day is for Kaoliang and Grain in Bud for Grain; sesame in Grain in Ear and beans in Summer Solstice."
