Chinese eat tangyuan, a round, sweet food made from glutinous rice flour, to celebrate the Lantern Festival, which falls on Friday this year. The average daily sales of tangyuan have increased rapidly this week. About 100,000 tangyuan have been sold daily at Shanghai time-honored store Ningbo Dumplings in Yuyuan Garden, according to xinmin.cn. Employees at the store have to start work at 2 am in order to meet demand. Salty tangyuan are also sold in this store, but more Shanghainese prefer sweets. Illustration: Lu Ting/GT
