Spring couplets (春聯 ) are usually seen on the sides of doors leading to people’s homes or as hanging scrolls in an interior. They used as a New Year’s decoration that expresses happy and hopeful thoughts for the coming year. They are usually written on red paper, the colour of happiness.
Originating from around 600 CE and flourishing during the last thousand year, spring couplets remain an enduring aspect of Chinese culture. Please see more examples on my new page on couplets for Chinese New Year.
