    Could someone translate this character?

    This came as a set of CNY wall decals I got earlier. The other one has the Chinese symbol for luck, but i can't find this through any kind of translate program online.

    滿 - muhn (canto). Meaning is full or complete (although some of the ethnic Chinese here can possibly give a better explanation in context of CNY wishes).

    It means abundance in that context

    Thanks guys. As I said it came in a pair and the lady gestured to me I should put them up together. Just wanted to make sure it wasn't some couple type greeting like just married or indicative of a baby on the way since I was considering putting them up on the front door.

    My usual wall and door decorations which I've been reusing for the past five or six years got thrown out with all the Christmas stuff earlier so I've had to get some new ones.

    Btw, does it make a difference if I put the Luck one before or after this (left to right)?
