A daily women talk beside the red banners, from the past Spring Festival, hanged on each side and top of the door, creates the symbolic gateway on the house and add meanings of joy, luck and passion, with written messages that are usually intended to keep the bad spirits away and bring luck into the house.
Some also stick directly on their door the image of the "door god", as ghost catchers, to make sure that bad spirits could not get into the house.
