Spring Equinox, the day when spring begins

Spring Equinox, solar terms

The astronomical spring in the Northern Hemisphere begins on Sunday, March 20 this year. The March equinox marks the moment the Sun crosses the celestial equator – the imaginary line in the sky above the Earth's equator – from south to north. This happens on March 19, 20 or 21 every year.

2016年的北半球,天文学上的春天始于3月20日(星期日)。春分这天,太阳开始越过赤道,从南往北移。春分通常在每年的19、20和21日。

After this day, the sun continues to move to the north hemisphere and the temperature continues to rise.

春分以后,太阳继续向北半球移动,气温持续上升。

In China, there are a few traditions and customs on Spring Equinox: balancing eggs, spring ploughing, sending spring cow drawing, eating spring vegetable and spring worship. 

在中国,人们在春分当日仍保留一些传统习俗,比如竖蛋、春耕、送春牛图,吃春菜、春祭等。
