The Swedish Door Harp Story
(A Swedish Door Harp story card is included with
About 700 years ago the Swedish Door Harp was born out of an encounter
with eh Chinese. The Chinese practiced the art of Feng Shui using chimes
around door, windows and openings for the use of moving energy (good
in and bad out).
The Swedish adopted the idea but modified the design
to use strings and beads for sound with the purpose to repel evil spirits.
Now these have become a Northern European tradition that has evolved
to mean welcome, good luck, good health and prosperity to all that pass
through your door.
