The annual winter solstice is here, which means the year end is near, and new year is beckoning!

The winter solstice is one of the most important festivals in the Chinese calendar. It is the season of reunion, when families gather to bond and celebrate.

And “tang yuan” has become a necessary item during the celebration. Eating it also symbolizes growing a year older, while enjoying good luck and good health.

Happy winter solstice!

一年一度的冬至又到了,意味着一年又将尽,新的一年即将来临!

冬至在华人社会里是重大节日之一,因为冬至有着“团圆“的意义,是家人亲友团聚的时刻。

而吃汤圆对华人而言已经成为必要的庆祝方式,因为冬至吃汤团也象征着年长一岁,代表吉祥与安康。

冬至节快乐!
