the origin of eating dumplings
literally means "when giving birth", that is, the food eaten at the intersection of autumn and winter. However, there is another legend that during the Eastern Han Dynasty, Zhang Zhongjing passed Nanyang Dongguan on his way back to his hometown. He saw that the locals were yellow and skinny and frozen. Therefore, he set up a medical shed and cooked some dumplings for everyone. It was not called this name at that time, only because the food was very like ears, and the frozen ears were cured after eating, so people called it "jiao'er", which gradually turned into dumplings and gradually evolved into a custom. It not only meant to prevent cold and tonic, but also hoped that the whole family would be safe and healthy.
