One word a day, easy to master Chinese characters. Let's take a look at the basic knowledge of "东".
|Phrases：东方(dōng fāng) the east 东欧(dōng'ōu ) Eastern Europe|
|The character 东in the oracle bones looks like a big bag with its both ends tied , so the original meaning should be东西 (东西dōng xi : thing) .As the character developed and people could no longer discern the original form of “bag”, the character also came to mean “the east”.|
