Chinese New Year - Prep Continues

So the next thing I will be doing when my holiday starts is doing up the house for the new year.  Lots of spring cleaning....lots of housewife chores! Along with that I will be putting up some chinese decorations known as fai chun.  These can be cute decorations with a lot of new year sayings.  The sayings all have a different meaning and mean a lot to Chinese people.  This is what I had last year.....(spot the Hello Kittys!)

This one character means 'fortune'.  You can imagine this to be quite popular.

Much luck and much prosperity

The literal translation is 10,000 things to your will, in other words: - May your 10,000 wishes come true
