Another theory is that Emperor Yao once ordered his uncle and he to live in the north to observe the operation of the sun and determine the time of the winter solstice. According to the book of Yu in the book of Yao in the book of history: "(Emperor Yao) Shen Ming and uncle, who lived in Shuo Fang, called Youdu. Ping was in Shuo Yi. The days were short, the stars were Pleiades, and it was midsummer." (according to: Shuo, also in the North).

It can be seen that the winter solstice, as a festival, has attracted people's attention in ancient China.


winter solstice legend story 2 in the past, old Beijing had the saying of "winter solstice wonton and summer solstice noodles". It is said that during the Han Dynasty, the northern Xiongnu often harassed the frontier, and the people were restless. At that time, Hun and Tun leaders of the Hun tribe were very cruel. People hate it so much that they wrap it into corners with meat stuffing, take the sound of "Hun" and "Tun", and call it "wonton". Hate to eat, and seek to quell the war and live a peaceful life. Because wonton was originally made on the winter solstice, every family eats wonton on the winter solstice. Eating "pinch frozen ears" is the common name for Henan people to eat dumplings during the winter solstice. Why is there such a food custom? It is said that Zhang Zhongjing, the medical saint of Nanyang, was an official in Changsha. He returned home. It was snowy winter and the cold wind was biting. When he saw that the villagers on both sides of the Baiye River in Nanyang were naked, and many people's ears were frozen and rotten, he was very sad. He asked his disciples to set up a medical shed in Guandong, Nanyang. They cooked mutton, pepper and some cold expelling herbs in a pot, took them out and chopped them, made them look like ears with flour bags, and then cooked them in a pot to make a kind of "cold expelling and ear correcting soup" The medicine was given to the people. After taking it, the villagers' ears were cured. Later, during the winter solstice, people imitated eating, so the custom of "pinching and freezing ears" was formed. Later, people called it "dumpling", and some also called it "flat food" and "hot dumpling". People also said that the dumplings eaten during the winter solstice were not frozen.
