In celebration of Chinese New Year, this week’s character is 虎 (fu2), which means “tiger”.
The origins of this character are pretty simple – it’s a pictogram of a tiger! See all of the variations at the Uncle Hanzi website.
Each year of the Chinese calendar is represented by an animal. This year is the Year of the Tiger.
Happy Chinese New Year! 新年快樂! (san1 nin4 faai3 lok6) May you have good fortune in the Year of the Tiger!
