过去无论南方北方,春节期间都贴窗花。现在南方只结婚时才贴,春节一般不贴了。而北方贴窗花还盛行,看外国人对窗花的钦佩劲儿,真是足足的自豪感哪,请看下面的英语情景对话。

苏珊:
This is gorgeous! What is it? Why do you paste it on the window?
真漂亮!这是什么?你为什么要把它贴在窗户上?

This is a paper-cut. According to Chinese traditional custom, we like decorating home with paper-cuts on Spring Festival.

An old lady living in the neighborhood gave me. She is said to be a master of paper cutting. I can ask for some more for you if you like.

It depends. Some kinds of paper-cuts do cost much time and energy: while some are easy to make. Papercut like this one is easy. With paper and scissors, the lady can make one in five minutes.

That`s OK. Actually what I care about is when you can give me the papercut you have promised.
