    Not Canada's best effort, in my opinion. I wonder how widely used stamps like this are. Does anyone have an example used on a non-philatelic cover?

    What are the solar terms? Something similar to signs of the zodiac?

    The Twenty-four Solar Terms show the relationship between the universe, seasons, climate and agriculture, which is a unique creation by Chinese ancestors. Its establishment was closely associated with Chinese agricultural production. At the initial stage of agricultural development, people began to explore rules of nature since agricultural production was highly subject to seasonal changes. Thus, the Twenty-four Solar Terms that can indicate the changes of seasons and climate came into being, and they were used to guide sowing, harvesting and other agricultural activities. To date, it has functioned as an indispensable tool to guide the agricultural production in China.
