Chinese Red Envelopes

Make your own Chinese New Year Red Envelope

Red envelopes contain money in China and are given most commonly to kids from their parents, grandparents, and others as a way to send good wishes and luck.

GIVING RED ENVELOPES
Be sure to place fresh, new bills inside the envelope while avoiding coins. Avoid the number 4 (such as $40). The number 4 in Chinese is considered bad luck while the number 8 is said to increase luck!
Carry extra envelopes with you throughout the duration of the holiday in case you come across someone you would like to give an envelope to.

RECEIVING RED ENVELOPES
Make sure to accept the envelope with both hands. It is considered ill-mannered to use one hand.
Avoid opening the envelope in front of the giver as to not appear greedy.
Always show gratitude towards the generous giver!
