Spring equinox marked with egg traditions

At a kindergarten in Xingtai, North China’s Hebei province, a girl tries to stand an egg upright to mark spring equinox, the fourth solar term of the year, which starts March 21 this year. The egg-standing game is an old custom that can be dated back to 4,000 years ago. People practice this tradition to celebrate the coming of spring. It is believed that if someone can make the egg stand, the person will have good luck in the future. [Photo/VCG]
