There is a folk custom called Dumplings in Winter Solstice and Noodles in Summer Solstice as well asa traditional saying that one finds that every day is shorter than the day before after having noodles on the Summer Solstice day.People from many places in China have noodle dishes on their Summer Solstice menu.This is because the harvest season of wheat ends before summer.Therefore having noodles made from newly harvested wheat on the Summer Solstice day symbolizes ataste of fresh delicacy.In northern China,people have thick wheat noodles topped with thick gravy or a mixture of ground pork and salty soybean paste; while in southern China, people have plain noodles, noodles in soup, noodles with shredded pork, seafood noodles, crossing the bridge noodles, cold noodles with sesame sauce, etc. 
Additionally, people hold ancestral worship ceremonies on the Summer Solstice day in Shaoxing City.
