Dōngzhì 过冬


Whatever the Mayan Calendar say 
about today, 
To the Chinese Calendar, 
today is Dōngzhì
which symbolizes the 'Coming of Winter' 
...
The festive food called 'Tang Yuan' 
is a reminder that we are now a year older 
and should behave better 
in the coming year
...

I tend to believe more in the winter coming than the end of the world.

Greetings,
