China is an ancient nation in Eurasia, whose unique culture and civilization have evolved over thousands of years. One aspect of this culture is China's concept of the New Year. Whether rich or poor, eastern or western, life cannot be devoid of the enjoyment of elegance. The paintings and posters presented in this volume show the interests of the Chinese people. They are very particular about the Spring Festival celebrations; for every family it is a must to set off fire crackers, paste New Year couplets, glue paper-cuts for window decorations, and put up the Festival painting.
