My Cultural item is the fortune envelope of Chinese New Year. The envelope is to be received from all parents and guardians (as children). The envelope can come from any designs (dragons, flowers, and characters). But the color of the envelope can only come in red and made from paper. On Chinese New Year cultural clothing would be necessary for the young children of the whole relative family. The clothing can be a design of any chinese symbol but dragon and flower had always been the most popular on all chinese cultural clothing and the color can come in red, blue, yellow, and orange. In the chinese culture the most symbolizing color had always been red, because it meant luck. In the culture respect for the red and blue is always important. To me the envelope only holds fortune.
