The Colour Red and Decorations
The colour red is ever-present for Lunar New Year. It’s associated with wealth and good fortune in Chinese culture. You will notice red lanterns hung up in streets and foyers. Windows and doors will be decorated with posters and papers bearing lucky Chinese characters.
Most of these posters bear the character 'Fu' '福'. The character is a symbol of happiness, bliss and fortune. Sticking the poster upside down means the arrival of luck, happiness, and prosperity, because the Chinese word 'Dao', or "upside down", sounds similar as 'Dao', or 'arrive'.
Also common for decorating are Chinese knots, potted kumquats, and golden orange trees.
