Activities of the Months: The Third Month Anonymous Qing Dynasty(1644-1911) In the third lunar month, the weather warms and spring settles in. In the sunlight, light clothing replaces winter coats, making it an ideal time for outdoor activities. Represented in the lower left corner here is the annual ceremony of purification as held on the 3rd day of the 3rd month. Scholars sit along a winding stream as servants fill "winged" goblets, which can float, with wine. Those who wish to drink take a passing goblet from the stream. In the Han dynasty, it was custom to go to the water's edge for purification. In the Chin, the famous calligrapher Wang Hsi-chih held a gathering along the winding stream at his Orchid Pavilion. Floating goblets and composing verses, the event became associated with his famous gathering.
