Chinese Lanterns

Paper lanterns, originating from Eastern Han Dynasty (25-220), mainly were used as lamps in ancient China. A variety of crafts were used in their making such as Chinese paintings, paper-cutting, and pricking and seaming and many kinds of materials such as bamboo, wood, wheat-straw and metal were used in their manufacture. Paper and silk were the major materials. In Chinese culture, the red lantern is the symbol of booming life and prosperous business, so they are always hung on important festivals such as Lantern Festival, Chinese New Year and Chinese National Day in parks or along main streets. In some famous China towns abroad, you can see red lanterns all the year round. They have become a symbol of Chinese culture worldwide.

 

  

Paper cutting

Chinese paper cutting originated from ancient activities of worshiping ancestors and gods, and is a traditional part of Chinese culture. It is one of the oldest and the most popular folk arts in China. Normally paper-cutting artwork is used on festivals like Spring Festival, weddings and childbirth. Paper cuts always symbolize luck and happiness.The most famous paper-cutting characters in Chinese are “福” (fú, meaning 'lucky') and “囍” (xǐ, meaning 'double happiness'). Even to this day, Chinese people love to hang paper-cutting of these two characters at their doors. “福” is usually used during the Chinese New Year's Festival, indicating people's wishes for a lucky year. “囍” can often be seen at the windows or door of newly-weds.
