Li Chun :)

Yesterday was Li Chun, it marks the first day of Spring at the Northern hemisphere as well as the first day of the Year of the Dragon.


 The balancing egg act....


So What's Li Chun?
It means to welcome the first day of Spring to the eastern cultures. To many beliefs, this day is when the gravity is most powerful and that's why many Chinese uses the egg-by using the egg's smooth surface and make it stand on the floor which was closest to the ground(A tradition)- this also marks the first day of the Year of the Dragon :)

Do You know? Other countries also celebrate it!
Chinese: 立春 (Li Chun)
Japanese: 立春(Ris Shun)
Korean:입춘 (Ib Chun)
Vietnamese: Lập xuân
