I created this for my friend as his wedding gift. This is a common Chinese character that every one use it on wedding day. People stick it on windows and doors to tell their neighbors that they got married. I designed the picture by following the shape of the Chinese character "囍" (xǐ). "囍" is coming from two single Chinese characters, “喜” (xǐ), being together. The single "喜" means like. Therefore, people who like each other and fell in love with each other become "囍". The single "喜" also means happiness, which makes "囍" to be double happiness.
