Red Envelope Tradition
The ritual of exchanging red envelopes has its roots in traditional Chinese folklore and culture. The Chinese red envelope is the customary symbol of exchange when Feng Shui information, “remedies” and adjustments are shared.
Each night the Feng Shui practitioner places all the red envelopes under his/her pillow and sleeps on them, offering blessings and reinforcing the positive intentions to all those who shared in the Feng Shui experience. In the morning the practitioner removes the money and saves all red envelopes to be burned on an auspicious day.
