what does the people do during the winter solstice holiday Dongzhi

1 Answer(s)

Dongzhi (Winter Solstice) falls on Dec. 21 in 2016.

In Northern China, people usually eat dumplings on this day. By eating dumplings, they think it could keep them from frost in the upcoming cold winter. While some residents of southern China will have a meal made of red-bean and glutinous rice to drive away ghosts and other evil things. In other places, people also eat Tangyuan, a kind of stuffed small dumpling ball made of glutinous rice flour.
