Chinese Red Envelope

Red Envelopes/Packets (Hongbao) - Amount, Symbols and How to Give

Red envelopes always contain money in China, and are given, most commonly, to kids from their parents, grandparents, and others as Chinese New Year gifts.

They are called hongbao in Mandarin and lai see in Cantonese. The term “red packets” has also come into common use, though hongbao look and function more like envelopes than packets.

Why Chinese Give Red Envelopes during Chinese New Year

Chinese people love the color red, and regard red as the symbol of energy, happiness and good luck. Sending red envelopes is a way to send good wishes and luck (as well as money).

Actually, the significance of red envelopes is the red paper, not the money inside. Wrapping lucky money in red envelopes is expected to bestow more happiness and blessings on the receivers. Hence, it is impolite to open a red envelope in front of the person who gives it to you.

The Chinese New Year red envelope is a traditional gift for children during Chinese New Year. In China, the red envelope is called yasui qian (压岁钱 /yaa-sway chyen/), which means 'suppressing ghosts money'. Those who receive a red envelope are wished another safe and peaceful year.

Traditionally speaking, if you have started earning money, it is time to start your experience of giving Chinese New Year red envelopes. Giving a red packet is a way to share your blessings. Generally the amount of money wrapped in the red packets depends on your income. However, there is a custom that if you are not married, you need not send red envelopes to others.

Generally, on Chinese New Year’s Eve or New Year's Day, parents will prepare a red envelope and put it in their children’s pocket. Red envelopes were normally given and received only among families, while in some rural areas, the custom is that you have to give a red envelope to each child you meet during the New Year period.

Your close relatives (like your parents and your grandparents) will keep giving you red envelopes even when you are married, which is a symbol of their love and blessings for you.

Tips for Giving and Receiving a Red Envelope

Giving a Red Envelope

1. It's a tradition to put crisp, new bills inside a Chinese New Year red envelope. Giving dirty or wrinkled bills is in bad taste. In the week leading up to Chinese New Year, many people stand in long queues at banks to exchange old bills for new ones.

2. You're supposed to avoid putting coins in the envelopes.

3. Avoid giving amounts such as 40 yuan or 400 yuan. The number '4' in Chinese sounds like 'death', so this is considered bad luck. Even numbers, except four, are better than odd. It is best if the amount starts or ends in eight, such as 800 yuan, as it is considered to enhance luck.

4. Prepare red envelopes in advance and always carry some envelopes with you during all 16 days of Chinese New Year (from New Year's Eve to the Lantern Festival) in case you bump into someone that you may need to give an envelope to.

5. You'd better put different denominations in differently designed red envelopes so that you can quickly and tactfully discern whether you’re giving away 100 yuan or 1,000 yuan.

Receiving a Red Envelope

1. Always receive your red envelope with both hands. It is impolite to accept a red envelope with just one hand.

2. When you receive a red envelope, you should express thanks and greet the giver with a pleasing, auspicious phrase. Click to learn some Chinese New Year popular greetings.

3. Never open your red envelope in front of the person who just gave it to you. You should do it in private or when you get home.

In recent years, it has become popular among young people to send "red envelopes" via WeChat as a greeting. It has become a new way to greet friends or relatives during the Chinese New Year period.

Occasions for Red Envelopes
