Order of characters?

Post by Question » Tue Dec 18, 2001 4:01 am

Hi, I was hoping someone here could help me. It's not Cantonese related per se, but it has to do with Chinese.
I have four Chinese characters that are to be put up on my wall. They are the characters for "fortune" (fuk), "longevity" (sau), "luck" (luk), and "(double) happiness" (hei). Here they are in picture format:

Is there any particular order that they are meant to be placed in? Any help would be appreciated...thanks

The usual order is Fuk, Luk and Sau. The double happiness character is usually used independently as a wedding decoration.
