Wikipedia: 🧧 Red envelope
In Chinese and other East and Southeast Asian societies, a red envelope or a red packet (simplified Chinese: 红包; traditional Chinese: 紅包; pinyin: hóngbāo; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Âng-pau) is a monetary gift which is given during holidays or special occasions such as weddings, graduation or the birth of a baby. The red packet is also called “money warding off old age” (压岁钱; yāsuì qián) during Chinese New Year. Outside of China, similar customs have been adopted across parts of Southeast Asia and many other countries with a sizable ethnic Chinese population. In the mid-2010's, a digital equivalent to the practice emerged within messaging apps with mobile wallet systems. 🔗 Red envelope
