of winter solstice tang yuan are special

tang yuan: Naomi's mum says that winter solstice tang yuan are special because they can automatically tell whether your age is an odd or even number by the number of tang yuans in your bowl, no matter how randomly you scoop them out of the pot.

MANY Chinese celebrate the Winter Solstice Festival (or Dong Zhi in Mandarin) today.

Traditionally, it is a time for family reunion. For some, the Winter Solstice Festival is more important than the Lunar New Year.

Tangyuan (glutinous rice balls) is synonymous with this festival and the making and eating of it symbolises reunion.

There are many types of tangyuan, some filled with red bean paste, peanut paste or sesame paste.
