参考翻译： The couplet is a traditional form of Chinese poetry. They are also known as antithetical couplets, but are better described as counterpoints. These sentences are written on papers or cloth, or carved on bamboo, wood, or pillars. A couplet hung during the Spring Festival is called a spring couplet; during funerals, an elegiac couplet; and during weddings, a wedding couplet. With its neat and orderly counterpoints alongside harmonious level and oblique tones, it is a unique form of the Chinese language that uses one word for one tone. History says that the couplet’s origin can be traced back to Meng Chang, ruler of Later Shu of the Five Dynasties—making it a treasure of traditional Chinese culture. In 2005, the traditional couplet was added into the National Intangible Cultural Heritage list by the State Council of China.
参考翻译: Pasting Spring Couplets “The Spring Couplet”, also called “couplet” and “a pair of antithetical phrases”, is a special form of literature in China. The Spring Couplet is composed of two antithetical sentences on both sides of the door and a horizontal scroll bearing an inscription, usually an auspicious phrase, above the gate. The sentence pasting on the right side of the door is called the first line of the couplet and the one on the left the second line. On the eve of the Spring Festival, every household will paste on doors a spring couplet written on red paper to give a happy and prosperous atmosphere of the Festival. In the past, the Chinese usually wrote their own spring couplet with a brush or asked others to do for them, while nowadays, it is common for people to buy the printed spring couplet in the market.
