The Winter Solstice is also called the Winter Festival, Yadong, etc.; It is one of the twenty-four solar terms, and it is also a traditional Chinese folk festival. On the Winter Solstice Day, the sun shines directly on the Tropic of Capricorn. Since the winter solstice, the sun has returned to the north and the daytime of the northern hemisphere have increased day by day. After the winter solstice, northern hemisphere will enter the coldest stage. Hope everyone pays attention to adding clothes to keep warm!
There is also a special food culture on this day. In many parts of northern China, people think that dumplings have the meaning of "eliminating the cold", and there is a custom of eating dumplings every winter solstice. In the southern area, people are used to eating sweet dumplings. In Chinese culture，"Yuan" means "reunion" and "consummation". May happiness come as promised, and wish you all a happy winter solstice！
