福 (blessing): 我到(倒:dào)了
                        成龙大哥!
                        你也倒一招儿!

福 (blessing): 我到(倒:dào)了!
                       Jackie Chan!
                       It is your turn now!
   
My name is "福"(fú) or "blessing" in English. I'm a big star in Chinese characters.
我可是汉字中的大明星!

Chinese people like me very much, especially in the Spring Festival holiday, I'm much more popular than Jackie Chan!
中国人特别喜欢我。尤其在农历新年的时候,我的曝光率绝对超过成龙大哥!

My broker is a smart team made up of Chinese ancestors. They always have me dressed in yellow, which is the exclusive clothing color of Chinese emperors. So yellow highlights my nobility. My cloak is usually red. Don't be bothered by the bright color, as it helps to expel evil spirits.  
我的经纪人是一个充满智慧的团队,他们是中国人的老祖宗。他们常常给我上黄色系的妆容。因为黄色是中国皇帝的服装指定颜色。所以,黄色的我显得更加高贵!我的外层披风通常是红色,别介意它太鲜艳了。选择红色是为了辟邪。

On New Year's Eve, every family would paste me on their doors, as I will bring them happiness, blessing, safety and fortune.
除夕之夜,家家户户都得把我贴在门上。因为,我能给他们带来幸福、平安和好运。

When I'm in the low mood sometimes, I wouldn't arrive at (到, dào) some households on time. In order to make me arrive (到, dào) quickly, they figure out a way: to paste me inversely (倒, dào). Do you know realize that到 (dào, arrive) and 倒 (dào, turn upside down) are homophones? People hoping for good luck would always paste me inversely, reminding me to come to their homes as soon as possible.
有时我心情不好,不想按时到(dào:arrive)某些人家里。但那些人又非要我赶紧到(dào:arrive),于是他们想出一招儿:把我倒(dào:inverted)着贴。  
你知道嘛?到(dào:arrive)& 倒(dào:inverted)的发音是一样的。所以希望得到好运的人们,就把我倒着贴,提醒我:快到我家来!

I usually stand upside down all the year round. You may wonder whether I have the magic power. Surely, I do. Otherwise, how can I gain more exposure than Jackie Chan?
我常常头朝地,脚朝天,倒贴一整年。你不觉得我有神功吗?的确有!要不,我的曝光率怎么能超过成龙大哥呢?!"Blessing!快点儿来我家!" Come on to my home!"到(倒:dào)!福到(倒:dào)了!成龙大哥,你到(倒:dào)了吗?快来和我过一招儿!""到(倒:dào)!福到(倒:dào)了!Jackie Chan,你到(倒:dào)了吗?Come on play with me!"
