Chinese people love the color red and they regard red as a symbol of happiness and prosperity. They buy red decorations for the Spring Festival as a way to wish good luck for the next year. In northwest China's Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, intangible cultural heritage artworks in red have heightened the atmosphere of Spring Festival. With distinctive ethnic features, most paper-cuts of Hui ethnic group are inspired by local life. Artists use only scissors and pieces of red paper to depict various and vivid figures. People now use paper-cuts to decorate houses, and believe they can bring good luck and happiness to the family. Chinese knot is a traditional threaded craft for blessing. Its shape is regarded as a symbol of reunion, amity and peace. First as a decorative addition to clothing, Chinese knot is later used to decorate their houses as well. As China's young people now have strong confidence and appreciation of their own culture, more and more young people are willing to learn traditional Chinese culture and carry forward it.
