10 Days of Chinese New Year: Day 5

06 February 2015

On the fifth day of Chinese New Year, the students have been making Dui Lian or Chinese Couplets. Frederick and William tell us more…

For the fifth day of the school's Chinese New Year celebration, the school's Mandarin lessons throughout the day have been centred around the creation of Dui Lian (Chinese Couplets). Dui Lian is a long-kept tradition of Chinese New Year where the eldest member of the family will inscribe the family's blessings for Chinese New Year. However as time has passed, the creation of Dui Lian is no longer a tradition for families, instead it is purchased in shops. But today, the students will experience first-hand the creation of their very own Dui Lian through the art of Chinese Calligraphy.

中国的对联对仗整齐,是汉族的传统文化之一。新年庆祝的第五天,所有星期五有中文班的同学都会在自己的中文班展开写对联比赛。以前中国人过新年都有写对联的习惯,但随着时代的变化,越来越少的人自己写对联了,都去商店买现成的。这次的对联比赛以羊年为主题,写带有“羊”字的四字成语,像“喜气洋洋”、“三阳(羊)开泰”等等。
