Zhaoqing Festivals

Winter Solstice
Date: between the 22nd and the 23rd days of the 12th lunar month
Origin and Significance: According to lunar calendar, Winter Solstice is an important solar term, as well as a traditional festival. It is still celebrated nowadays in many places in China. Winter Solstice is also called Winter Festival, Long Solstice Festival, Ya Sui, etc. Early in spring and Autumn Period over 2,500 years ago, Chinese people had observed the Winter Solstice with a sundial. It is the earliest of the twenty-four seasonal division points. Winter Solstice falls o­n the twenty-second or the twenty-third of the twelfth lunar month every year. The Northern hemisphere o­n this day experiences the shortest daytime and longest nighttime. After this day, daytime will become longer and longer. There are many ancient sayings about the Winter Solstice, such as “Ying comes to its extreme and Yang starts to grow”; “the sun has come to the southeast”; “daytime at its shortest length and nighttime at its longest length”, etc. This is why the Solstice is also called Dong Zhi, meaning midwinter. After the Winter Solstice, the coldest temperature comes to everywhere, so-called Jing Jiu (entering nines). As the saying goes, “the cold falls o­n the third nine-day period in winter, and the hot falls o­n the third ten-day period in summer”.
Celebration Ways: Eating dumplings; eating wontons.
