Red envelope

My object is the red envelope. During the New Year, children will receive the red envelope from elders. In my culture, giving the red envelope is a way to send blessing. The color red means happiness, the word on the envelope means blessing , the money inside represent the luck. Those who receive a red envelope are wished another safe and peaceful year.
Although we migrant to U.S., we still keep this tradition. In New Year, I visit relative and pay a New Year call, they will bless me and give me a red envelope. The significance of New Year is to make the relationship between relative more closer, we usually sit and eat dinner together.
