Kids at a kindergarten in Guangping county of Handan, Hebei province, played a game on Monday in which they stood eggs upright to welcome the upcoming chunfen, or spring equinox.

Spring equinox — the fourth solar term of the year — fell on Tuesday. The traditional Chinese solar calendar divides a year into 24 solar terms.

During the spring equinox, standing eggs upright is a traditional practice nationwide and a popular game.

The Fourth Kindergarten of Guangping organized activities on Monday to help pupils learn about the Chinese term and understand related folk customs.
