Re: Winter Solstice ('Dong Zhi'), 12/22/2009, 12:00 am
- I was born on the Winter Solstice and especially enjoy thinking about the thanksgiving message of Dong Zhi. I have many precious family members for which to be thankful as well as many friends and a great DragonSeed forum!
Have a blessed Dong Zhi everyone, and a Merry Christmas.
Warmest regards, Omabi

> Dong Zhi is the thanksgiving of the Chinese calendar. "Dong Zhi" literally means "arrival of winter". Coinciding with the winter solstice, it is an occasion for the family to get together to celebrate the good year they have had. Tang Yuan (汤圆) is cooked and eaten to symbolise unity and harmony within the family. Dong Zhi occurs 6 weeks before Chinese New Year and would normally fall between 21st Dec and 23rd Dec.
