生意興隆 - (A wish) for booming businesses

These are called "Fai Chun": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fai_chun

  • Thank you. So it's essentially a talisman? Also, it seems the written scroll text and the printed one vary quite a bit. How do you find the printed equivalent when it looks very different to the handwritten text?

  • I wouldn't say talisman (where it's more leading towards 'protection spell' sort of meaning). It's more a decoration that usually consist of 4 words for good luck / prosperity / etc, and very commonly used during chinese new year. As for why I find the print version, I kinda see these every years and i'm over 30 lol so I can eyeball it from the get go

  • When you google the third word, there's plenty results that gives you the different writing of the same word: google.com/…
