Red packet with money.
Normally married couple are suppose to give
this red packet (with money of course)
to unmarried & single people...
like kids, spinster and stuff.
The amount is varied, and there are no rules on how much you should give.
Anyhow, giving red packet is just a symbolic gesture...chinese tradition Posted by Picasa
