The traditional East Asian calendars divide a year into 24 solar terms (節氣). Xiǎomǎn (pīnyīn) or Shōman (rōmaji) (traditional Chinese: 小滿; simplified Chinese: 小满; Japanese: 小満; Korean: 소만; Vietnamese: Tiểu mãn; literally: "grain full") is the 8th solar term. It begins when the Sun reaches the celestial longitude of 60° and ends when it reaches the longitude of 75°. It more often refers in particular to the day when the Sun is exactly at the celestial longitude of 60°. In the Gregorian calendar, it usually begins around 21 May and ends around 5 June (6 June East Asia time).
