Red envelopes are a major part of many different social events in Chinese culture, including weddings, births, and the Spring Festival, among others. Because this phenomenon is so massive, today's BST focuses primarily on the envelopes that are handed out during the Lunar New Year celebration: who gives them, who gets them, what's in them, and the significance behind them. If you're looking for related lessons, check out this intermediate lesson on Chinese New Year plans and this advanced lesson on red envelopes for special help. Enjoy the show!
