As the Spring Festival of the zodiac year of the rabbit is approaching, the spring “Fu” spreading event is much anticipated by proprietors of all residential quarters. The Chinese character “Fu” (fortune, bliss) and couplets carry our expectations and our hope for a better life in the coming year. After three years of fighting against COVID-19, this year, many people who have recovered from COVID-19 are finally able to return to their hometowns to celebrate and spend the Spring Festival with their families. Big hugs from the dearest family members and the Chinese character “Fu” pasted everywhere at home will be the most inspiring things in the Spring Festival. Having been waiting for this moment for so long, we hope for nothing but reunion, peace, and health this spring from the bottom of our hearts.
In January 2023, one after another, many Binjiang Property projects in Hangzhou, Yiwu, Quzhou, Jinhua, and other places successfully held the spring Fu spreading event to build up the atmosphere of the Chinese Lunar New Year. Calligraphers, calligraphy teachers, and enthusiasts were invited to write down the character Fu in either a simple, unsophisticated, unrestrained or stately style and send Fu together with blessings to everyone. It was also regarded as a Spring Festival calligraphy exchange meeting.
At the event scene in Hangzhou Emerald Coast, many proprietors also itched to have a go and show off their calligraphy skills. As one of those enthusiastic proprietors, Mr. Du willingly wrote Fu and also Spring Festival couplets for other proprietors. “Giving out Fu is like sharing fortune and bliss with everyone. The handwritten Spring Festival couplets also create a stronger atmosphere of the New Year,” said proprietors gladly.
In Jinhua Golden Landing, 12 proprietors who are calligraphy enthusiasts were invited to write Fu cards for neighbors. In different styles, the 12 calligraphy enthusiasts wrote the Chinese character Fu of cultural significance, attracting a lot of audiences and adding certain cultural elements to the atmosphere of the Spring Festival. Over 130 Fu cards were given out on site for everyone to place their hope and yearning for the New Year on. “The Fu cards made on the spot are even more meaningful than those ready-made cards. Kids are extremely excited about the rabbit Fu cards made by themselves and to share their calligraphy experience with other kids,” said a proprietor.
