In 2018, Lap Chun is missing. Lap Chun is the first day of spring in the Chinese Lunar Calendar.
A Year When Lap Chun Goes Missing, The Chinese believe, if a New Year is to start without spring, this will denote a weak year ahead. Without spring to herald in the year, there will not be any significant growth or abundance, instead it looks like tough times are ahead.
So, in order to bring spring in our new year, we need to display a tree on East of our homes.
