Chinese Gift Envelopes
Anyone who has ever lived in China is undoubtedly familiar with the phenomenon of "Hongbao", also known as the gift envelopes. The envelopes are colored red, among other things, because red is the color of happiness and energy in Chinese tradition and must protect people against evil spirits. By giving a red envelope, you give your congratulations, as it were, to the bridal couple, the parents of the newborn child or to your grandchildren. The amounts of the gifts in the envelope differ per occasion and how much you have to spend. As a number, even numbers are usually used since odd numbers are associated with gloomy conditions. On the other hand, in some regions it is customary to give an odd number to bridal couples as a sign of a good marriage. This is because it is not easy to distribute. What is generally wise is not to give amounts with a 4, since this number sounds the same as "Death" in Chinese. These red envelopes are packed per 6 and are 8 cm x 10.5 cm
