Based on the lunar calendar, Lunar New Year takes place on a different date each year. Traditionally, red envelopes are given to children by their parents or elder family members wishing them prosperity and good luck in the coming year. The red envelopes (traditionally known as hong bao or lai see) always have money enclosed and are believed to bring happiness and luck to the recipients.

Each year of the 12-year cycles is represented by a Chinese zodiac animal, and characteristics are associated with each zodiac birth year. The dragon symbolizes courage, creativity and innovation, and people born in the Year of the Dragon are seen as charismatic, ambitious, adventurous and fearless.
