Giving red envelopes during the Chinese New Year is another activity. But this year, grabbing red envelopes is the most popular entertainment. Everyone can participate in it.
A red packet is simply a red envelope with gift money in it, which symbolizes luck and wealth .People can take part in grabbing envelope activities on various websites. For example, in We chat, QQ and other sites. At the New Year's Eve, people are holding a mobile phone, shaking to grab a red envelope .People who get red envelopes are delighted; they either collect them or send them to relatives, friends and children.
Grabbing a red envelope became a fashion with a large number of people following it.
However, many people have different opinions on grabbing a red envelope .They think that grabbing them can reduce the communications between families .The old people hope to spend more time with their families , rather than always hold the mobile phone shaking, since it dilutes the flavor .
Everything has two sides. I think our young people oughtn’t to follow the trend. Only in this way can we have more time with our family. I’m convinced that this phenomenon can be controlled effectively.
