Send Spring Festival couplets in New Year

In the rural areas of Taihang Mountain area, every household should put up Spring Festival couplets on the doors during the Chinese New Year, so as to bid farewell to the old and welcome the new and increase the festive atmosphere, which also expresses the Chinese working people's good wishes to ward off evil spirits and eliminate disasters and welcome happiness. This is a small mountain village, and there are fewer and fewer people who can write with a brush, so this gentleman wrote many Spring Festival couplets in the temple and gave them to the whole village.
