Hong Baos are envelopes filled with money given by married couples to their single or younger family members during Chinese New Year. The amount inside isn’t important, but the hong bao itself represents good fortune and wealth in the coming year. Traditionally, hong baos are supposed to be red in colour. Which is why they’re called Hong Bao, translated directly into Red Packet. But these days, you could find them in many different colours and designs.
