    Zhu Bao Ping An is a Chinese Idiom, it came from:

    "竹(bamboo) is the material to make 竹简 (zhujian), which is used to write letters on.

    竹报(zhubao) is the alias for family letters.

    平安(Ping An) is Peaceful

    so 竹报平安(Zhu Bao Ping An) refers to the family letter to report safety."(From: www.lifeinchina.cn/thread-5479-2-1.html)

    After that, it became Chinese New Year Greeting words "means peace is announced, and wishes that peace will last for the whole year like the evergreen bamboo. These are things that the Chinese will hope the New Year brings them." (From www.cawoking.org.uk/home/Festivals/chinese_new_year/chine...
