Make A Cute Face

A cute character on the door of an old house in back alley Changhua City.

I noticed this cute character on the door of an old home in back alley Changhua City 彰化市 while on my way to a cafe today. I didn’t recognize it at first, though I assumed it was fú 福, which means fortune or good luck. With a bit of research I discovered that I was right—this is an old school variant with a new school twist. Decorating your home with red couplets and characters is a Lunar New Year tradition—and the holidays are only a few days away.
