why is the winter solstice more meaningful than the summer solstice

because people in China want to pay attention to the solar terms of the winter solstice since ancient times. Because it is cold, many people have frostbite in their ears and split their hands. Because the medical Saint Zhang Zhongjing cooked mutton in the anti cold medicine and wrapped it in their face, After curing people's frostbite, people had the custom of eating dumplings at the winter solstice. The winter solstice is not the coldest day. The winter solstice is the beginning of the coldest stage of the year. The great cold is the coldest day of the year. However, spring begins 46 days after the winter solstice, so the whole cold stage is not very long.

There would also be street markets among the people, and the imperial court would set up this day holiday.
