On December 22, 20xx, the day is the Winter Solstice, it is an important day in China, it becomes a tradition. More than 2500years ago, Chinese people had detected this day by measuring the sun. What is special on the day? The answer is that the daytime lasts the shortest while the night lasts the longest of the year. It means the new round of the solar term, the Winter Solstice is the earliest. As an old tradition, people treat that day a grand day, they celebrate it.

With the fast development of society, we are in a new society which is called “Quick Fix Society”. People are now becoming more and more impatient. We are always in a hurry.
This general impatience, the hurry attitude, has infected every level of our lives. Today people usually travel by the fast tool, eat fast food, take fast pictures, enjoy fast entertainment, read fast news. The whole society has become a quick fax society. Therefore people don’t have time to enjoy many beautiful things around them.
We need to think more seriously about putting brakes on this impatient lifestyle. We should slow down so that we have time to enjoy music, to read, to enjoy beautiful scenery, to rediscover life.
Now people in significant numbers are beginning to compare themselves with others. They harbor the idea that comparison can not only make them realize the differences between them and others, but also make them strive. They retreat surpassing others as success.
Opinions vary from person to person. Some people take the attitude that comparing ourselves with others does have the passive effects to our life. On the one hand, if you compare yourself with the one who is weaker than you, you will be so satisfied with the current situation that you will lose the ambition. On the other hand, compared with the ones stronger than you, you can not find the confidence.
