Red envelopes for senior citizens and retirees during Chinese New Year

Philippines is one country that always treasures respect for the elderly and the senior citizens. Being one of them, I do not find it a problem. However, you only look around you and see that there are many who are elderly and senior citizens who are neglected by their loved ones. It is inspiring to know that Chinee New Year gives attention to expressing their Tender Loving Care to the children and elderly during their celebration of the New Year by giving them Red Envelopes.

The money inside the red envelopes is not the main point of the story. It is the attention that they give to the children who are dependent on their parents and adult siblings to have a good life and the elderly and retirees who are no longer physically fit as before. Also the elderly and the senior citizens have become sentimental in their old days.

Chinese New Year 2016 is on Monday 8 February.
The date of Chinese New Year is based on the Chinese lunar calendar, not the Gregorian calendar, but is always somewhere in the period from January 21 to February 20. Read more on Chinese New Year dates from 2016 to 2027.

Our resource material  is China Highlights via Google for us to give data which are accurate. However, it is accurate to say even as a Filipino and an elderly that the elderly is not interested in  the red envelope to mean just to receive money but to be loved and cared by children, relatives and if the spouse is alive, by him/her most particularly :)
