In China it is tradition for red envelopes to be gifted containing money to children and single people which symbolises good luck and good fortune as well as to ward off bad spirits. Red envelopes are also typically given at other special occasions such as birthdays and Chinese weddings.
Chinese red envelopes are generally rectangular shaped as this is to represent a shield that symbolises protection. The size of the envelope also can vary from small, to accommodate folded bank notes, to a larger sized red envelope which can accommodate bank notes as well as a written personal note.
