“24 Solar Terms Live Show”—— Start of Spring

Authors: Go Chengdu


A new solar terms, the Start of Spring (Li Chun, 立春), is just around the corner. “If winter comes, can spring be far behind?”
Li Chun is the first term of the 24 solar terms. The character "" in its name means "launch; start; establish" and Chinese people have considered the day as the beginning of the year since ancient times.
"A year's plan starts with spring", as an old Chinese saying goes. Since the term of Li Chun, temperature begins to rise, and the busy season of spring farming begins in most parts of China.
Flowers come into the blooming season and it is the time for people to go outing, which is called "Chun-you春游" or "Ta-chun踏春" in Chinese.
In Chengdu, it is popular for people to eat the Spring Rolls (Chun-juan, 春卷) during the days.
Chun-juan is something like a pancake stuffed with sliced chicken, shredded vegetables, sea weeds and so on, wrapped up in the thin skin. A very special food for the season…and I'd like to have it with some chili oil. I am a Chengdu local, you know!
