The traditional East Asian calendars divide a year into 24 solar terms (節氣). Hánlù (pīnyīn) or Kanro (rōmaji) (Chinese and Japanese: 寒露; Korean: 한로; Vietnamese: Hàn lộ; literally: "cold dew") is the 17th solar term. It begins when the Sun reaches the celestial longitude of 195° and ends when it reaches the longitude of 210°. It more often refers in particular to the day when the Sun is exactly at the celestial longitude of 195°. In the Gregorian calendar, it usually begins around October 8 and ends around October 23.

Pentads[edit]

  • 鴻雁來賓, 'The guest geese arrive' - Geese which completed their migration in summer were considered 'hosts', and the later-flying ones as 'guests'. This pentad can also be interpreted as 'The geese arrive at the water's edge'.
  • 雀入大水為蛤, 'The sparrows enter the ocean and become clams'
  • 菊有黃華, 'Chrysanthemums bloom yellow' - the chrysanthemum is known as one of the few flowers to bloom in autumn.
