The average lucky money in Guangdong is 50 yuan, which is not because the Cantonese are stingy.
A few days ago, a map of lucky money in every area was hot on the internet. The map shows that the average lucky money in Guangdong is 50 yuan, which was joked by net users that it has been disliked by children but popular with adults. In this rich area, Cantonese believe that lucky money represents only the mind of the individual, and how much money doesn’t matter.
In Guangdong, the cultural connotation of lucky money is greater than its social significance, and this idea makes Cantonese feel no pressure to give lucky money to others. There is a Cantonese called Liang Yiming, who prepares 100 red packets that there is just 5 yuan in each of it for relatives, friends, workmates and neighbors. He said everyone believe it was lucky to get it, and nobody cared about the amount of money.
There is a saying goes that the gift is trifling but the feeling is profound. Not seeking money in red packets is the primary mind of Cantonese. And I suppose this idea is worthy of national promotion. If so, everyone can have less financial burden during the Spring Festival, instead, they can have more fun and interest.
By the way, how much lucky money did you get?
