some korean friends were sharing with me on email about eating 팥죽 (red bean soup) & 동지 (winter solstice) on 22.12.2014.

i later posted on Facebook-

yesterday was 冬至means arriving of winter.

P.S. ok from wiki = http://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/冬至

冬至,又稱「冬節」、「賀冬」,台灣又稱「入冬」….因为冬至并没有固定于特定一日,因此和清明一样,被称为“活节”。…never knew that was the meaning of <warh joyk>“活节”

one friend said-

It is “活节” based on Lunar calendar. It is always fixed on 22 Dec based on solar calendar.

another friend found this-
