Sometimes, not everyone is excited about the lunar new year…especially when it’s your turn to give.
In this week’s issue of the Sampan Newspaper, we explore how it’s tradition for married couples to give red envelopes filled with lucky money to children and those who are younger & single.
Basically, you make bank as a kid.
Are you all ready for the new year? Well, I finally put away the xmas tree and…that’s about as much as I’ve done to prepare. So, don’t feel bad because all that matters is that you not swear; don’t sweep/clean; and avoid the salon – just greet everyone with a happy new year message…
so 恭喜發財! 新年快樂! 心想事成!
