Red envelop during Chinese festival
I think the red packet of a Mainland official’s child should be more than this; the money must stretch beyond the bed.
Chinese call the New Year`s money Hongbao, which are gifts of cash in red envelopes. They are given to children by older family members on Chinese New Year, as lucky gifts for the year ahead. The gifts can range from 100 Yuan to 1,000 Yuan for a child.
It was supposed to be a way of showing love and care to younger people. But now it is more about the amount of money inside.
