Know More: Cold Stuff

Knowledge
Cold Zone
The Tundra region is the coldest of the world's biomes. It is cold, treeless and has a frozen subsurface (beneath the surface). The growing season in the tundra ranges between 50 and 60 days per year. This growing season occurs during the summer, when temperatures average between degree 3C to 12C. Although there are approximately 1,700 kinds of plants in the arctic and subarctic, there are no deep root systems. This is due to the layer of permanently frozen subsoil called permafrost.

Cold Food Festival
The Cold Food Festival is a traditional Chinese Holiday celebrated for three consecutive days. It starts the day before the Qingming festival in the Chinese lunar calendar and generally falls on April 5 unless it's a leap year. It is also celebrated in Korea and Vietnam. During this time farmers sow various seeds and supply water to their rice paddies. For more information check: www.china-guide.de

Cold War
The Cold War was a period of conflict, tension and competition between the U.S.A. and the former Soviet Union, which lasted from the 1940s to the early 1990s.

Cold Temperature and Pets
The rule is simple, if you feel cold, your pet will feel cold too. If you are taking your pet to relieve itself or for a winter walk make sure you protect your pet's body and limbs with warm fabric. Your pet can suffer from frostbite too.

Common Cold
Do you have a runny nose? Have you been sneezing, feeling tired and lazy and wanting to sleep all the time? You have caught the common cold and the best way to fight it is to take your medicines and rest it out. The common cold is a respiratory disorder characterised by sneezing, sore throat and coughing caused by an allergic reaction or by a viral, bacterial or mixed infection.

Cold Colours
It's a good idea to do up your home in cool colours in India because it beats the heat. The cool colour scheme varies from greens to blues to whites.

Keeping the Cold Away!
The emperor penguin's secret to keeping warm is huddling. It is actually a social behaviour that's been developed by these penguins where in they huddle (come close) together in groups that may comprise of several thousand penguins. This way, each penguin has another penguin close by to keep it warm and they literally create a warm penguin blanket to shield themselves.

Did You Know?
Most animals living in sub-zero temperatures have a thick fat layer called blubber that helps them insulate against the cold. Get more information from: www.coolantarctica.com
