During Chinese New Year, it is very common to see the character for Good Fortune (福) pasted the other way round. This is because when Good Fortune is Turned (福倒), it sounds exactly like Good Fortune has Arrived (福到). It originated with simple Chinese calligraphy (black ink) on red pieces of paper but these days, there are countless versions such as papercuts and gold prints. Some even have Chinese zodiacs all round the Good Fortune, everyone just hopes to be blessed.
