The first solar term of the year. It lifts the curtain of spring, and the daytime is becoming longer and the weather is becoming warmer afterwards.As a solar term, Beginning of Spring had already entered people's lives in the Spring and Autumn Period (770-476 BC). In ancient China, people would often celebrate the day with ceremonies and worships for a prosperous year, and even nowadays, many traditional celebration events still remain.
I really love to read your posts about history bro. You have a hand and soulful brain for writing good read about ancient Chinese history and traditions. Thumbs up to you the one and only!
Good read to start a Spring on a great Sunday morning!
The photo is amazing. I'm biased cuz I love sky hahaha. The sun's shines in contrast with the blue sky! #lovely!
And I'm on holiday on the 16th! yahoo! I'm planning to go to Chinatown but I'm scarred of too many ...
Holiday again? Is it a public holidays there? My advice is to go Chinatown on 15th as that is the Eve of CNY, they will set off firecrackers at 12 mid night. Also those red lanterns and set off firecrackers to scare the monster away in the old age but only a custom now a days.

Hehehe thanks.. but I really don't understand how come also holidays there? Emmm.. (゜o゜)
Maybe because there are Chinese citizens here too. And local Chinese are also making most of our population. Chinese-Filipino communities celebrates it too. I'm not one but I take part at least in the tradition. :)
