The Tai Sui, or God of the Year, is said to be the deity in charge of everything that happens on earth in any particular year. There are 60 Tai Sui in all, and each year, a different Tai Sui is ruled over until the cycle completes and restarts.
By carrying the image of the Tai Sui of the year in one’s home, you pay homage to the Tai Sui, bringing him onto your side. The blessings of the Tai Sui can be tremendous, as can his wrath. It is thus customary for the Chinese to offer prayers to the Tai Sui of the year, seeking his support and blessings at the start of each year.
