Exclusive Chinese New Year (CNY) Red Envelope / Angpow / Money Packet
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 also calledhongbao 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. In Malaysia, we normally call itAng Pow / Angpow.
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 (ang pow) 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.
Why Chinese Give Red Envelopes/ Angpow?
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).
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.
Actually, the significance of red envelopes is the red paper, not the money inside. Wrapping 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.
Traditionally speaking, if you have started earning money, it is time to start your experience of giving 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.
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.
