小寒と大寒・Little Cold, Big Cold

Leave a comment

1月5日、6日頃に始まり大寒までの期間を小寒といいます。冬至から数えて15日目頃で、冬至と大寒の中間です。いわゆる「寒の入り」とは小寒のことです。

Sho’ukan (“Little Cold”) begins around January 5 or 6 and continues until Da’ikan (“Big Cold”).  Sho’ukan is about 15 days from To’uji (“Winter’s Arrival”) and is right in the middle between To’uji and Da’ikan.  When people say “Kan-no-iri (Winter has set in),” that refers to Sho’ukan.

1月20日頃に始まり節分立春の前日)までの期間は大寒です。小寒から数えて15日目頃に当たります。

Da’ikan begins around January 20 and runs through Setsubun, a day before Risshun.  It is about 15 days after Sho’ukan.

小寒から節分までの30日間は「寒の内」で、寒さが厳しくなる時節で冬本番となります。大寒はその真ん中にあたります。

The 30-day period know as “Kan-no-uchi (dead of winter)”spans from Sho’ukan to Da’ikan.  It is a season of sever cold and the height of winter.  Da’ikan falls in the middle of it.

寒い季節ながらお正月ですのでお道具では「冬のもの」よりも「おめでたいもの」が多いですね。

Nevertheless, when it comes to utensils, “festive” is a predominant theme over “cold” during this period – thanks to Oshogatsu.
