The day before the wedding, a propitious hour and a "good luck woman" or "good luck man", that is a man or women with many children and living mates, were selected to install a newly purchased bed. The installation ceremony consisted of merely moving the bed slightly; and place a red packet or "Yuan" coin at each corner of the bed symbolizing unlimited blessings of wealth and prosperity. After the bed was in place, children were invited onto the bed as an omen of fertility-; the more, the merrier. For the same reason, the bed was scattered with red dates, oranges, lotus seeds, peanuts, pomegranates and other fruits. Part of the fun was watching the children scramble for the fruit.
