👨head 頁→页(simplified) [yè] + 🚶foot/walk slowly 夂 [zhǐ] =☀️💃🏻☔ summer 夏[xià]

🔎Feet of a shaman dancing at a rain festival

🔎Some say this character describes a shaman(頁) with wildly dancing feet(夂).

🔎Of all the rites, the most important was to pray for rain, so in the Eastern Zhou(东周, 770~256 BC) Dynasty, this character came to mean ‘summer.’

🔎* “夏” the top part of “夏[xià],” is the shaman dancing in a long-sleeved outfit and shows both hands(⺽). When a shaman is dancing in a trance, the feet look like they are upside down, which is why “夂” was used.
