22. 12. 2015 – Dong Zhi, (冬至) one of the Chinese traditional festivals, I was able to return back to my hometown enjoying a bowl of tangyuan (汤圆),balls made from glutinous rice flour mixed with water and cooked in ginger soup) prepared by my grandmother. When we were having this warm sweet dessert, elders would say: you are now a year older, where we believe that celebration of winter solstice is more significant than Chinese New Year (冬大过年).
