"Fun in ICH" Series – 2024


Let’s put up huichun together!

As the Lunar New Year approaches, the Chinese communities will follow the tradition of putting up huichun (spring scrolls) in their homes, stores, workplaces and other venues. Traditionally, huichun are written in ink on red paper in a variety of calligraphic styles and formats, which convey people's wishes for the New Year as well as adding a decorative touch to the venue.


The Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) Office will organise a "Writing Your Own Huichun Workshop" to introduce the history, culture and artistic appreciation of the traditional custom of putting up huichun. Participants will also have the opportunity to practise writing huichun. Furthermore, a "Blessings for Lunar New Year with Huichun" event will be held to engage the public to pass on the tradition of putting up huichun, a local ICH item.
