Winter Solstice Festival

Tomorrow is the Winter Solstice Festival which is also known as the “Dongzhi Festival”.  It is an important event in the Chinese calendar and some people regard it as the most important festival of all.  Family gathering takes place on this day and consume “tang yuan” which are glutinous rice balls cook in sweet broth.   They are also offered to friends and relatives as gifts.  I know I will be eating lots of “tang yuen” tomorrow 😉  I hope I won’t go overboard though since I am still trying to maintain my weight.  Otherwise, I will have to start looking for the best weight loss pill in the market.  Happy Winter Solstice Festival to everyone.
