இ Enter the Dragon ~ 恭喜發財


http://www.glitteryourway.com!

We cannot Drag-on for too long gotta bid goodbye 兔tù-gether to the Rabbit and usher in the Dragon@Jan23, 2012. May the Year of the Dragon breathe fire and passion into everything you do. Wishing You Good Health, Great Wealth, Success, Happiness and in perfect Harmony with the Universe.

*fú* ~ meaning happiness | good fortune | good luck | a blessing | bliss. For those celebrating Chinese New Year this word is the most popular besides the dragon in almost every household or shops. You see it everywhere, on angpow packets, paperbags, hampers, lanterns, greeting cards whatnot. They are hanging or pasted on walls or at strategic location as advised by fengshui master. Some people do believe that by placing the word 福 *fú* upside down would bring them good luck as fortune some how will drop in. How true? *Gong*Xi*Fa*Cai*

Addendum: Thanks to Casendra for shedding some light on the inverted 福*fú* as *dào* is a homophone word for either 倒*dào*[invert] or 到*dào*[arrive]. Thus for fortune 福*fú* to arrive which is 福到 *fú dào* the inverted 福*fú* represents a combination of invert/arrive.
