The traditional East Asian calendars divide a year into 24 solar terms (節氣). Shuāngjiàng (pīnyīn), Sōkō (rōmaji), or Sanggang (romaja) (Chinese and Japanese: 霜降; Korean: 상강; Vietnamese: Sương giáng; literally: "frost descent") is the 18th solar term. It begins when the Sun reaches the celestial longitude of 210° and ends when it reaches the longitude of 225°. It more often refers in particular to the day when the Sun is exactly at the celestial longitude of 210°. In the Gregorian calendar, it usually begins around October 23 and ends around November 7.

Pentads[edit]

  • 豺乃祭獸, 'Jackals make offerings of the beasts'
  • 草木黃落, 'The plants yellow and shed leaves'
  • 蟄蟲咸俯, 'All insects go dormant'
