A child devours watermelon at a youth center in Haozhou of East China's Anhui province on Aug 6, 2014. Eating watermelon honors an age-old folk tradition of embracing Start of Autumn (Liqiu), one of the 24 traditional Chinese solar terms that marks the beginning of autumn. People also eat peaches to mark Start of Autumn. By eating the fruit, it is hoped that the scorching summer will be bitten away and a comfortable, cool fall will follow. [Photo/Xinhua]
