At the beginning of autumn, the New Era Civilization Practice Station of the Qingfeng Community in the Wangchun Subdistrict, together with the Paper Airplane Children's Library, launched the autumn chapter activity of "Ten Styles of Zhejiang · Gifts for Parents and Children". The teacher led the children to learn the culture and custom of the Beginning of Autumn in picture books, and let the children have watermelon for hope of a cool autumn. It is learnt that there is a custom of having watermelon on the day of the Beginning of Autumn, which means that when the hot summer is hard to endure, you should "have a bite" of the Beginning of Autumn to dispel the heat.
