Happy Summer Solstice

Today is the longest day in the northern hemisphere – how do you celebrate it?

In Chinese culture, this day is called 夏至 (xiàzhì), literally meaning the extreme (至) of the summer (夏). It is one of the 24 solar terms in Chinese culture.

Watch the video below to see how Chinese people celebrate it. Did you notice any of the celebrations of Chinese friends or neighbours today?

Happy Summer Solstice!
