Order of Characters?

Post by Question » Wed Dec 19, 2001 4:05 am

Hi, I was hoping someone here could help me. It's not Mandarin 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" (fu2), "longevity" (shou4), "luck" (lu2), and "(double) happiness" (xi3). Here they are in picture format:

<IMG SRC="http://www.zhongwen.com/d/184/d83.gif">

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