During the Tang Dynasty, two great generals named (秦叔宝)Qin Shubao and (蔚迟恭)Yu Chigong were in charge of protecting the officials of the imperial palace. Emperor Tang Taizong felt that the generals were working too hard, so he ordered their portraits to be painted and hung beside the palace door to assist them.

The two generals thus became associated with the ancient guardians of the threshold, known as door gods to protect the household from evil influences and repel demons ever since.

Lunar New Year's Eve, the last day of the old year, is one of China's most important traditional holidays.

Homes are spotless in and out, doors and windows are decorated with brand new Spring Festival couplets, New Year's pictures, hangings, and images of the Door God, and everyone dresses up in new holiday clothes.


To the Chinese, New Year's Eve dinner is more than just enjoying a grand feast. On this day, all Chinese all over the world, no matter how far away from home they are or how busy at work, will be home for dinner.
