中国語で「福が倒れる」の発音と「福が来る」の発音が同じことから中国では「福」の字の書いた赤い紙を逆さまに壁に貼ることで「福が来るよう」にと願います。

In Chinese, the upside-down character for "fuku(福)" is called "tou-fuku", and the pronunciation of "tou-fuku" also means "fortune has come", so people in China put up a piece of paper with the upside-down character for "fuku" on the wall and wish for happiness.
