Happy winter Festival
The longest night with some DVDs.
“DVD Time : Something in the Air / Après mai  / 五月風暴

// 2014-12-22 winter solstice

In fact, the custom of eating rice balls (Tangyuan) early in the Zhou Dynasty had it!

Winter solstice is one of the most important solar terms in Taiwan.
In this day, there are the longest hours of night. ^^
That’s why we watched 3 movies : Godzilla/哥吉拉 2014, The Body /El cuerpo/屍物招領(recommended), Something in the Air / 五月風暴, but we didn’t finish the last one.
