THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE HONGBAO

Giving or receiving Hongbao is customary during the Lunar New Year. Hongbao is  money wrapped in red paper, traditionally given to children by their parents or grandparents as New Year gifts.

Hongbao is also given as a wedding gift or as a thank you gift to show gratitude. It’s a blessing for younger generations to receive Hongbao from older generations.
