Winter Solstice at my parental home

I went to bed about 4AM and woke up at 1:30PM. What a nasty single life...

After some housework, I headed for my parental home in the evening for some reason.

It was Winter Solstice(Toji), the shortest daytime in a year, today. So my mom prepared a hot citron bath and the pumpkin boiled with soy sauce and sugar, as Japanese traditional custom,

We Japanese believe these keep us healthy from long ago.
