Dongzhi

The one-day Dongzhi Festival is observed in China, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan and Vietnam. ‘Donghzi’ is a Chinese word that refers to winter. The festival has ancient Chinese (Han Dynasty) origins and is a time to bond with family over special food, celebrate the winter solstice and arrival of lengthening days, worship and practise other rituals. Some places organise public events but this festival is a relatively private celebration.
