Chinese New Year/Spring Festival
- Unit Price
The Chinese, during the Spring Festival or Chinese New Year, place the character 福 (fu) on their front doors upside down. This character means fortune and good luck, and by hanging the 福 on the front door upside down, it is believed that fortune and good luck will enter your home in the New Year.
The Chinese word upside down 倒 sounds the same as 到 arrive. Therefore, when people say, "Your fu is upside down," it sounds like "Your fu has arrived," meaning
that your luck, happiness, and prosperity have arrived. Hence the upside down 福 (fu).
We have created this letterpress card in the traditional format of presenting the fu character...hot stamped gold calligraphy on a red diamond background.
Hang this card with the attached ribbon for fortune and good luck this year.
