Li Chun (立春) is the first festival of the Chinese solar year and it falls on either the third, fourth or fifth of February. 

Known as “the Beginning of Spring”, Li Chun is the start of a new Chinese solar year when we are revitalised and look forward to a fresh beginning.

Some people like to celebrate Li Chun by balancing an egg upright on a flat surface. It’s usually pretty hard to do, but it’s easier on this day. It’s because of the alignment of the moon and sun on this day, which alters the Earth’s gravitational field. 

This concern with balance has evolved into the modern era. So now followers of Feng Shui believe that depositing money during Li Chun symbolises steady and balanced income throughout the year. Many people also choose auspicious timings throughout the day to deposit money, based on their own horoscope or zodiac sign. The money can be deposited in the bank or you can deposit money online.
