Today is Sunday, January 22, 2023, the first day of the first lunar month on the traditional Chinese lunar calendar. The Chinese mainland this year enjoys a seven-day Spring Festival holiday starting January 21.
The elder generation often hand red envelopes, or lucky money, to children during the Spring Festival. Red symbolizes vitality, happiness and luck in Chinese culture.
