Fu, Lu, and Shou is the concept of Happiness ( Fu), Prosperity (Lu), and Longevity ( Shou). This concept of the Chinese traditional religion is thought to date back to the Ming Dynasty, [1] when the Fu Star, Lu Star and Shou Star were considered to be personified deities of these attributes respectively.
The term is commonly used in Chinese culture to denote the three attributes of a good life. Statues of these three gods are found on the facades of folk religion's temples and ancestral shrines, in nearly every Chinese home and many Chinese-owned shops on small altars with a glass of water, an orange or other auspicious offerings, especially during Chinese New Year. Traditionally, they are arranged right to left (so Fu is on the right of the viewer, Lu in the middle, and Shou on the far left).
