The Red Envelope

Giving of red envelope (Hóng Bāo) containing cash is one of the traditions in Chinese New Year as a symbol of fortune for the coming brand new year. Photos above are my collection for this year, made of satin with flowery embossed.
These are some red packets or red envelop for sale

The theme for this year...


May Goodluck and Good Fortune be with you!

Your post reminds me of the newspaper that I once saw that was red all over.
Thanks for this delightful post.

All the best, Boonie

I love these red envelopes. I would be collecting and saving them (far more useful than plain cards.)

Happy Ruby Tuesday!
