Winter solstice  冬至

Winter solstice, as the name implies, means the coming of winter. As an important solar term in the traditional Chinese calendar,what is special on the day? The answer is the daytime lasts the shortest while the night lasts the longest of the year.


冬至,顾名思义是“冬天到来”的意思。这是中国农历中一个非常重要的节气,也是中华民族的一个传统节日。这一天有什么特殊的呢?答案是在这一天,白天最短,夜晚最长。

Custom  习俗

In Northern China during winter solstice, there is a custom of eating dumplings and wontons. People in southern China will eat sweet dumplings to symbolize the reunion of family.

 

中国北方大部分地区在这一天有吃饺子,馄饨的习俗。在中国南方,则会吃汤圆,以象征家庭团圆。

Make dumplings  包饺子

In order to inherit the Chinese food culture, at the time of the Winter Solstice, the international students of Liaoning Communication University learned how to make dumplings from the staffs of the canteen.

为传承中华饮食文化,在冬至将至之时。辽宁传媒学院国际教育学院的留学生们,向食堂后勤员工“妈妈”们学习了如何包饺子,先用白面擀成皮,再把中间放上调好味的菜和肉馅,包好,在热水里煮熟。

And then they enjoy the spoils of thire labor with a variety of different condiments. You can dip the dumplings in soy sauce, vinegar, or chili oil. Dumplings are truly delicious!

品尝他们的劳动成果的时候,还蘸上酱油、醋、辣椒油和成的调料汁,真是鲜香美味!

Stay warm and healthy, and good luck in the coming new year. 

Happy winter solstice!
