- The Bag of Happiness arrives with the following printed words:
Over the centuries, the beautiful language of symbols has evolved to express the five values of wealth, luck, prosperity, double happiness, and longevity. The Chinese feel that by surrounding themselves with these felicitous symbols - in their art, architecture, language, and household objects - they increase their chances of a long and happy life.
Wealth is often symbolized by a special coin, originally made in the 4th century B.C. The circle signifies heaven, and the internal square represents earth.
The gourd is a symbol for good luck because it is believed to ward off evil spirits.
The monkey represents a wish for prosperity, especially success in one's chosen career.
Double happiness, the desire for a happy and harmonious love relationship, is often represented by a pair of mandarin ducks because they mate for life.
The pine tree, known for its hardiness, signifies a long life.
