Happy Dongzhi Festival
I just knew that today is the Dongzhi Festival day. Gosh, didn't even prepare anything to make 'tang yuan'.
I just googled a little bit about what is Dongzhi festival is all about. For those who don't know what this means, Dong zhi is a day where family will get together and eat 'tang yuan'. It is also known as the winter solstice. 'Dong' refers to winter while 'zhi' means 'arrival'. In this day, everyone will become one year older. During the Ming dynasty, tang yuan is known as yuanxiao, which also means the lantern festival.
Dong zhi is also a day, where sunshine is weakest and daylight is shortest. The celebration represents balance and harmony of life.
Anyway, to all who is reading this, Happy Dongzhi day and make sure you go home to eat with your families!!
