Top 20 Facts:

18. The Chinese character “fu” is everywhere” during the festival. On the doors of shops and families and even in rooms, people like to paste high the “fu” character on red paper. Fu(福) is written on the paper squares, which can be pasted normally or upside down, for in Chinese, the “reversed fu” is homophonic with “fu dao le” pronounced as “fu comes”. The upside down fu becomes a pun that implies “good fortune has arrived”.
