A kindergarten student in Handan, North China's Hebei Province displays painted eggs that read "Spring Equinox," which fell on Monday this year. In China, it is said that the egg can be set upright at the Start of Spring, Spring Equinox day and Autumn Equinox day. It is believed that if someone can make the egg stand on the first day of the Start of Spring, he or she will have good luck in the future. Photo: CFP
