I'm Canadian and my mom and dad is Taiwanese so the New Year is a big day for my family! I love the new year because we get Red Pockets which contains money in them. There called 紅包 ( Pronounced "Hong-Bao") the red color of the envelope symbolizes good luck and is a symbol to ward off evil spirits. Also, when we get the red pockets we always say 恭喜發財 or Gong Xi Fa Cai which means "wish you prosperity and wealth" that's good manners. Anyway's Gong Xi Fa Cai and happy New year everyone!
