If you have more cash at hand, consider placing a fixed deposit this year. As of January 2024, the interest rate is between 3% and 3.35% per annum for a 12-month tenure.

The timeframe explained: Why are the timeframes in multiple of 2 hours?

In contemporary times, a day is commonly defined as 24 hours. However, in ancient Chinese astrology, a day is defined as 12 Earthy Branches (地支). 

Therefore, 12 Earthly Branches correspond to 24 hours, with each Earthly Branch representing 2 hours and also signifying a specific zodiac.

From the table below, you can see that a day commences at 11pm in Chinese astrology. Consequently, the period from 11 pm (on 4 Feb) to 1 am (on 5 Feb) falls within the date of 5 Feb.

Other Li Chun traditions and their importance

1. Erect the eggs

You will see many people try to erect the eggs during Li Chun. 

The act of erecting the eggs is known as “Li” or 立 in Chinese. It is believed that when you successfully “Li” the eggs, you will be blessed with good luck for the whole year. 

2. Eat springrolls

As Li Chun signifies the start of spring (春) and springroll is also known as 春卷, Chinese eats springroll on this auspicious day to usher in the new year.

Springroll is also consumed on the first day of Chinese New Year to usher in the first day of lunar calendar.

3. Sunbathing

Sunbathing is undoubtedly the most sunny and positive way to usher in the new year.

Family and friends usually gather outdoor during Li Chun to enjoy a simple outing while enjoying the mild sunlight on Li Chun.
