Chinese families enjoy savory, hearty dumplings (predominantly in the North) or Tangyuan, glutinous rice balls which are more popular in the South. In Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, simmering mutton pots are popular on this day.

The shortest day of the year and it is cold, yet the two coldest solar terms come hereafter, Minor Cold ๅฐๅฏ’ (xiวŽo hรกn) and Major Cold ๅคงๅฏ’(dร  hรกn) before the Chinese New Year with the Start of Spring ็ซ‹ๆ˜ฅ (lรฌ chลซn) arrives.

What are Winter Solstice traditions or foods in your country or region ?
