The Story of Red Envelopes - Lunar New Year

Happy Lunar New Year! Red envelopes are often passed out to family and friends during special occasions, like weddings and birthdays, as well as holidays like the Lunar New Year. They come in a variety of designs and are filled to the edge with auspicious characters and symbols, like dragons, phoenixes, lions, fish, and the wise men of wealth.

Even cartoon characters like Mickey Mouse, Pokemon and Hello Kitty can be found! They sure know their demographic!

Often banks and brands will give out empty envelopes to costumers since they know they'll be widely circulated, and thus some brand exposure in return.

Which designs do you like the best?
