Customs in Frost’s Descent
It’s a custom to eat duck on the first day of Frost’s Descent in south Fujian Province and Taiwan. There is a saying which goes, “Even nourishing all year is not as good as nourishing the human body on the first day of Frost’s Descent.” This shows how important Frost’s Descent is to people in Fujian and Taiwan. Therefore, every year when Frost’s Descent comes, duck is so popular that it is often out of stock. It’s always a happy time for duck sellers. Meanwhile, for people in Shandong Province, eating beef on the first day of Frost’s Descent is also a custom.
