Hotei, one of the seven sacred gods, is the god of happiness, fortune and contentment. He is a jolly fellow who carries around his bag of treasures for those who believe in his virtues. He is the patron of children and fortunetellers. There is a legend that if several strangers get together on New Year’s Eve and all ask Hotei for a gift and believe in him that their wish will be granted, however only if they all ask for the same gift. The peach is also known as the "fairy fruit" and is thought to have originated in China. It is an emblem of marriage and a symbol of spring, longevity and immortality.
