Tongji & Tongji Porridge
   Korean people called November by the lunar calendar tongjidal in Korean, and the winter solstice tongjinal.
   When the winter solstice occurs in the first ten days of lunar November, it is called aedongji, and when it falls afterwards, rodongji.
   People said the early winter solstice was good for children while late winter solstice for old people.
   It reflected the wish of children to grow up early and that of the elderly to live long, as they regarded the winter solstice as the New Year’s eve.
   It was also said that the winter with early winter solstice had more biting cold.
   Tongji porridge is a must on the day.
