This year I noticed this strange symbol on multiple doors, although I am sure it has never been there before.


What does it mean? What culture uses it?

    @fkraiem We have questions about cultural differences and aspects of other countries. It's not that far fetched. – nsn Jan 30 '17 at 15:33

This is the Chinese character for "Good Fortune" 福. January 28 was the Chinese (Lunar) New Year.
