Christian Chinese New Year Banners 基督春聯

Christian Chinese New Year Banners 基督春聯

It was last year this time that I discovered Christian Chinese New Year banners and couplets. I saw one in the background of a photo that a friend in Asia had taken at his pastor’s home. Unfortunately, his head blocked some of the words. and my intensive google search began. Once I found out the right search term in Chinese 基督春聯, I found lots of images of them.
