Once a year the "Winter Solstice" falls on today 22nd December. I heard my mother say"Winter Solstice larger than Chinese New Year".I just accept these words not had asked why at that time.But now grown up, so i searching the answer for it.Actually, day in the northern hemisphere is the longest, and the night is the shortest in the Winter Solstice.Besides, Winter Solstice is larger than Chinese New Year totally because the winter solstice is the shortest day of the year in the sunshine.
However，I did not eat any Tangyuan in the winter solstice.I had been buying materials and rubbing Tangyuan before in Universiti.So miss that time we made it.At this time i not rubbing any Tangyuan because there is worthless if i rubbing byself and i also becomes lazy. But, the elders are invited me to his home to enjoy dinner together.I feel ashamed refuse his kindness so I and two others involved in a jittery mood enjoying the dinner with he and his family.However, no embarrassing scenes occur, but is gratifying, moreover we also talking so late before returned home!
This time I did not taste any Tangyuan, hope that the next time i can return home to celebrate this day and eating Tangyuan together.
Happy Winter Solstice Festival to everyone!
