Chinese Characters History in China

It has been popular in China to hang Chinese character art in the home or over the door for millenia. Most Chinese words are compound, meaning that they combine two or more characters to form one word. However, some characters are able to stand alone, largely because of their widespread use and deep meaning.

Chinese also love to give good wishes to others, using these meaningful Chinese characters. Many of these characters are recited as parts of proverbs or poems or sometimes on their own as part of well wishing. It is especially popular to bless others with good wishes during festivals like Chinese New Year or for special events such as weddings. Giving a symbol scroll for blessing, happiness, or prosperity is a meaningful gift.
