Winter festival 冬至

It is raining season in Malaysia (monsoon weather). It is cloudy, drizzling right now (10:30am), temperature 26 degree C (80 degree F).

Chinese throughout the world are celebrating Winter Festival (Winter Solstice) today.

It is one month before Lunar Chinese New Year. (First day of the New Year falls on 23/1/2012).

The festival is celebrated by eating Tangyuan and a family dinner.

Like many other families, our children are staying outside and overseas and not expected to be home, so me and my wife would be ... no celebration.

However, our friend Mrs Lee has invited us to join their family dinner tonight !

It is the spirit that matters.



马来西亚现在正处于东北季候风雨季时期。现在(早上10:30)正下着细雨,阴天。气温26度摄氏或80度华氏)

今天全球华人欢庆冬至节,吃汤圆,吃团圆饭。

如好多家庭版,我们的孩子都在外住(及国外),所以今天不回家,那就只剩下我俩老的。我们就。。。没庆祝。。

不过,我们的好朋友李太,邀请我们今晚到她家共度佳节

团圆精神才是最重要。
