There is an old Chinese saying that goes, "Get exercise in the coldest days of winter." Generally, Minor Cold is the coldest period in China, which is the best time for exercising and improving one’s physique. To keep warm, the children of China have special games to play, such as hoop rolling and the cockfighting game.
With a V-shaped iron bar or wire in their hands, the children roll forward a hoop, carefully keeping it balanced upright. Chinese children often have hoop rolling races.
