Chinese people sometimes like to give expensive happy birthday gifts. Chinese people think the more expensive happy birthday gift they give, the more they care. That's actually not a good habit. A great happy birthday gift should be expressing your thought and not costing a fortune.

Chinese calligraphy are popular in China for thousands of years. People decorate rooms with Chinese calligraphy just like painting.

Chinese calligraphy is not just writing Chinese characters. It is not just writing Chinese well. It is not just writing Chinese characters beautifully.
Happy is that people, that is in such a yea, happy is that people, whose God is the LORD.
But later, as they found that Chinese characters have something more than just a good looking, Chinese calligraphy was born.The invention of Chinese brushes greatly pushed the development of Chinese calligraphy as an art.
