Happy Dong Zhi

Happy Dong Zhi: Dong Zhi or Winter Solstice Festival/Dongzhi Festival (冬至). Dong Zhi is the thanksgiving of the Chinese calendar. It is an occasion for the family to get together to celebrate the good year they have had. Unlike most Chinese festivals that are based on the Chinese lunar calendar.

In China the Dongzhi Festival pulls family together and celebrates the cycles of nature, the push-pull of yin and yang that signifies the cosmos's balance and harmony. Dongzhi literally means “the Extreme of Winter,” and the shifting of this balance.

I would like to wish all my Chinese blogger Happy Dong Zhi "冬至快乐" 祝大家身体健康,万事如意
