Most Chinese houses have a courtyard. There are a big door at the gate. On the top of the door, there should be some Chinese calligraphy works. Even poor people in China will have Chinese calligraphy works there. If the Chinese characters there were some print, the owner of the house will be regarded as an idiot.

Chinese calligraphy art works are also widely used to tombstones. In ancient China, tombstones are used to record the life of the owner. To have people after thousands of years to see the life of the owner, Chinese calligraphy works were carved into the stones.

A calligraphy work of "happy birthday" is likely to decorate a birthday party. If it's a birthday party for an old person, their usually some calligraphy about "longevity" will show up.

In Jin dynasty, carved tombstones was forbidden. So there are less Chinese calligraphy works in that period left although Jin dynasty is one of the glorious period in Chinese calligraphy.

Today, Chinese calligraphy art works are also appear in cars. In China, a lot of cars are decorated with some good Chinese phrase such as "safe on the way" in Chinese calligraphy.

For the relatives, the most closed relatives should have the symbol of celebration on both sides of the doors of the gate in their homes.

If there are no Chinese calligraphy, there will be no decoration in China.
