The most widely seen Chinese character being used in the hanging craft is 福 fú the character for good fortune or luck. It is virtually everywhere in the households of the Asian countries. Besides the hanging decoration, you can see it on posters, pot, painting, wind chimes, or write fu characters in black ink calligraphy on red paper. The fun fact about this character is that it sometimes is displayed or hung upside down. Imagine the good fortune - fu arrives from the sky or heaven. By placing upside down, it gives you an impression of arriving from the above. The upside-down signifies the continuous of fu coming toward your home. Something good is just around the corner, and you just haven't noticed it.
If you have visited an acupuncturist or learned chi gong or Chinese martial arts, you may have heard the word "chi" (qi), which means the energy flow that you cannot see with your bare eyes, but may be able to feel it in everywhere. If you put two characters together, fu and chi, you have a new word, fu chi (fu qi). It means that you carry the fu chi within you, and that affects your entire life. When someone said you have fu chi, it meant that you are blessed with the things you have. These things can be material things, or you have a helpful spouse, or you have a great child or having good in-laws.
