The evening of January 19 saw Beijing’s first snowfall of 2022.
An abundance of snow-themed photos and videos of the capital have circulated on the Chinese internet. But there were a few that stood out.
One of the most noticeable was footage from the Jiankou section of the Great Wall in Beijing’s Huairou district. The section is considered to be a ‘wild’ section of the Wall.
See the footage below:
Beijing is no stranger to a white blanket around this time of year. After all, today (Thursday 20, 2022) is dahan (大寒) or ‘great cold.’
In early November, 2021, residents of the capital got something of a surprise when snow arrived earlier than usual. The Beijing Meteorological Service stated that that batch of snow arrived around 23 days earlier than usual.
If the Beijing snow snaps and videos are good for anything, they might be a way for you to relax and take a break from the seemingly endless barrage of COVID news.
