on the night of new year’s eve or the first day of new years, just after the big dinner when people are gathered for talk, relatives usually put "yā suì qián" or "end of year money" in the red packets. that’s what kids all love. and at the same time kids should give new year’s greetings like “happy new year!” “live a happy life!”
