a.k.a. New Year Lucky Money Envelopes. Over 300 designs!
"Lucky money in red envelope" is one of the Chinese folk customs for celebrating the New Year. Usually, after the New Year's Eve dinner, elders would distribute the lucky money inside red envelopes, which they have prepared in advance, to the younger generation. This act symbolizes the elders' care and sincere blessings for the younger ones, hoping that they can pass the year peacefully with the lucky money.
The red envelope itself is a significant part of the lucky money tradition. Red represents fire and is a symbol of joy, happiness, success, and good fortune. The custom of giving red envelopes originates from another Chinese New Year legend about a demon named ‘Sui’. The mythical monster would come and pat children’s heads while they were sleeping, resulting in the children being scared and developing a high fever. Coins in a red envelope was then placed under children's pillows or at their feet to ward off the monster. When Sui appeared, the coins produced a powerful light that frightened the monster away. This gradually forming the custom of giving children the lucky money in red envelopes for blessings, warding off evils and avoiding disasters. In later generations, the lucky money in red envelopes symbolises people's hope for prosperity, health, and safety for their families in the new year. Today, other lucky colors are also being used in the envelope designs.
Fun for the whole family!
