Two words today! 😁 汤圆 tāng yuán and 元宵 yuán xiāo are both traditional treats for the Lantern Festival...

Oh, did I mention that the Lantern Festival is TODAY? Well, it is! Time for the "New" part of New Year to go away ☹️ Now it's just year.

Back to the topic at hand -- both tangyuan and yuanxiao are glutinous rice balls. Both contain fillings and are eaten for the Lantern Festival, but there are several differences.

Firstly, it is a regional difference. Typically, tangyuan are traditional in South China, and yuanxiao in the Notth. The textures and filling types also vary, as does the cooking method (yuanxiao are typically cooked for longer).

Don't worry if you didn't know there was a difference, though. Even some Chinese may not realize that the two similar-looking treats are not one and the same 🙃

Happy Chinese learning! Thanks for taking this journey with us! 🙂
