A couplet, or a pair of lines of poetry written on red paper, is an important decoration during Spring Festival, or Chinese Lunar New Year, as it is placed at the entrance of a house. Dozens of international students from Nanjing Agriculture University experienced the preparation for the coming Spring Festival, which falls on Jan 31 this year. [Photo by You You/Asianewsphoto]
