新春富贵年年好,佳岁平安步步高- A Personal Message Chulian for you

On February 2,  we shall welcome the Year of the Jade Rabbit. Teachers at Global Hanyu will write in  beautiful caligraphy customized messages that you wish to have for your Chinese New Year celebration.

For me, I am continuing with a family tradition. My late father used to write Chulian and give it to the neighbors in our village during the Chinese New Year time. We grew up helping him prepare the messages and watch him write them with black ink on red paper.Now the Confucius Institute@Global Hanyu Malaysia is most pleased to continue with this tradition; to wish everyone a happy new year.

Chinese New Year Message or Chulian (春联) is  a popular folk custom popularized by decree of the Ming Emperor Chuyuanchang. Chulian employs very precise; elegant langugae to describe the people’s wishes in the context of coontemporary times. Chulian is a unique literary contribution from China; the world’s earliest Chulian was found at the Caves of Tunwang.

Hanging the fortune word upside down – Yes, it is now a custom to hand the word fortune (福) upside down, and we always wonder why.  Legend has it that one illiterate peasant did not know how to paste the word; and he past it upside down. When the Emperor saw it he was furious and wanted to punish the peasant, but the good hearted Empress Ma explained that by pasting the word upside down; it signifies the arrival of fortune.  The emperor was pleased with the explaination; and Empress Ma saved the entire peasant family.

To welcome the year of the Jade Rabbit; we have extracted the following Chulian for you to pick. Contact your laoshi and you would get a personalized message for the new year.

HAPPY NEW YEAR to all
