"Joy", also means "Music". pronounces, "Le", and "Yue". The top part of the word shows silk strings stretched across a wooden frame, representing a gushing(Chinese zither). Some interpret the center part showing a circle with a horizontal line as representing the mouth of a singer. In either case, music is being played, and this makes both the performers and the audience joyous.-by Deng Ming-Dao
