It was said in the Book of Han that "The Yang energy rises on winter solstice, and the spirit of gentlemen also rises with it, thus a day worth celerbrating…" The ancient Chinese considered the winter solstice to be the beginning of the year when people paid tribute to Heaven and their ancestors and welcome the New Year. In the ancient China, people in many places observed the custom of eating wontons on the winter solstice. Wontons are also commonly known as huntun or dumpling by many.
