The Chinese New Year is counting down. On January 27th it will be the Chinese New Year Eve. We have many customs in the Chinese New Year. One is we will paste the antithetical couplet besides the door. My husband likes the calligraphy. So this year he used the brush and ink to write down this pair of antithetical couplet. It is not bad anyway

The left one means: Seasonal color clouds keep coming. The right one means: A year's good luck follows with the spring.

Everywhere in China has different ways to celebrate the Chinese New Year. Most of us will have a feast in the Chinese New Year Eve and then watch the TV. As to the dragon dance, it may be a commercial activity from the malls. We like to stay at home in the Chinese New Year Eve and we don't go out to count down. So it is not likely to see the giant parade

It looks lovely. Are you able to tell us what it says or do you need to keep it a secret?
