Mid Winter, Dong Zhi or Winter Solstice is a Chinese festival. We eat the balls on this day and the balls is call Tang Yuan, not our balls – LPs or testicles. Haha. According to people, you eat how many balls according to your age. Let’s say you are 80 years old, you must eat 80 balls (Tang Yuan). Just kidding, you can use 1 big Tang Yuan to replace 10 small Tang Yuan. So if you are 35 years old, you eat 3 big, 5 small tang yuans or you can eat 35 tang yuans too! Eat till you siao.
I don’t know how much I ate. I just eat only. Grandma made a lot for us. I didn’t help her to make, because I don’t lives in my grandma house. I would love to help if I got a chance to. But I am not a fan of tang yuan. I feel it’s hard to chew. Don’t you think so, but I like the sweetness. =) My brother loves it so much, but not me. Hehe. By the way, Happy Winter Solstice.
