There is a Chinese saying that goes, "The whole year's work depends on a good start in spring." As China has long been an agricultural country, for Chinese people spring means the beginning of a whole year's farming.

Start of Spring is the first of the 24 solar terms, which is considered the beginning of spring. As the weather warms up, spring awakens the earth, the rain falls, the thunder surges, and everything in the world wakes up from winter.
