double happiness

Double happiness is synonymous with one of life’s most important celebrations—marriage. Consequently, it is related to the wish for fertility, and is often seen at wedding banquets. The good luck that surrounds this character has made it ubiquitous, and it commonly appears on bowls, glasses, vases, product packaging, and other everyday objects. The phoenix, mandarin ducks, the magpie and the lotus are symbols for marriage and fertility.
