The Doors of Tainan

I noticed that the old doors of Tainan are often decorated with red bands containing Chinese characters. These are usually welcome messages for the good and at the same time they keep the bad away!
Red is the lucky color for the Chinese but not lucky enough to survive time.
Gradually red vanishes into pink and pink dissolves into white, but the message and the believes remain intact.
Alive cultural believes that still give a distinct look to the town!
