Chinese people love the color red and regard red as the symbol of energy, happiness,and good luck. Sending red packets is a channel for sending good wishes and luck. Actually, the significance of red packets is the red paper, not the money inside. Wrapping money in red packets is hoped to bring more happiness and blessing to the receivers. Hence, it is impolite to open a red packet in front of the person who gives you.

In China, the red packet is called yasui qian (压岁钱 /yaa-sway chyen/), which means ‘suppressing ghosts money. Those who receive a red packet are wished another year negotiated safely and peacefully.
