Steeped in the Chinese concept of yin and yang, The Winter Solstice Festival celebrates the balance and harmony in life. It is believed that on the shortest day of the year, the yin qualities of cold and darkness are at their most powerful, leading into the optimistic yang period of warmth and light.

Traditionally, The Winter Solstice Festival meant it was time for fisherman and farmers to get ready for the upcoming cold months, making it especially important in the southern parts of China, third only to Chinese New Year and Mid-Autumn Festival.

In Hong Kong, many people leave work early to go home and enjoy a lavish meal that includes Tong Yuen (a sweet soup with balls of sticky rice) with their family.
