Chinese people often use ideograms - the Chinese language equivalent to words - to make artwork that carries emotional and psychological meaning. One item seen often is referred to as "Double Happiness." It is supposed to bring a double dose of happiness to all around it. It is commonly seen at weddings and is a typical wedding gift to bring happiness to the new union.

Its association with weddings is tied to an ancient story that involves a student traveling to the capital to take exams. He falls ill and takes refuge with an herbalist with a beautiful young daughter. They fall in love. As he leaves for exams, she gives him a poetry couplet to match that deals with a natural topic. The young man leaves. He gets the top scores on the exam and meets the emperor. The emperor chats with the young man and asks him to help him complete a poem. His girlfriend's couplet perfectly completes the emperor's poem. The young man is rewarded with a senior government position and the couple can have a gala wedding. To salute their luck they create a wall hanging with the happiness symbol doubled to show everyone their good fortune.

Others have said that the ideogram resembles two people, a bride and a groom, holding hands in wedded bliss.

Luck Factory brings you Double Happiness from China. The double happiness symbol makes an ideal gift for newlyweds. It is also an item that brings good fortune to any who wear it or come into contact with it.
