Winter Solstice

Glutinous rice balls (汤圆) or “Round dumplings in sweet soup” is eaten during auspicious family celebrations and Winter solstice aka “dong zhi” (冬至).The round and sticky dumpling balls symbolize family closeness and togetherness. I remembered I used to eat a lot of it when I was a kid...but as an adult.. I hardly eat it unless I go to visit my parents.
