In China people believe they can attract good fortune and avert misfortune by speaking lucky words and surrounding themselves with lucky objects. Auspicious Chinese symbols are found on arts, crafts, architecture, household objects, etc. The plum tree blossoms before other trees and is, therefore, believed to be a symbol of growth and rebirth. As plum blossom appears in the cold weather at the end of winter or in early spring it also represents strength and courage. Chinese artists use it in their paintings to encourage others to be strong and brave. In addition, it is a symbol of longevity, wealth, health and virtue.
