冬至 Winter Solstice China

冬至 (𝗱ō𝗻𝗴 𝘇𝗵ì) 𝗪𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗿 𝗦𝗼𝗹𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗰𝗲 𝗙𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗶𝘃𝗮𝗹 | 𝗗𝗲𝗰𝗲𝗺𝗯𝗲𝗿 𝟮𝟮

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 小寒 (xiǎo hán) and Major Cold 大寒(dà hán) before the Chinese New Year with the Start of Spring 立春 (lì chūn) arrives.

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