Hong Bao

hong-bao-small.jpg

Aujourd’hui, un poste très sĂ©rieux sur les Hong Bao.
Hong: rouge
Bao: sac
Les Hong Bao sont donc des enveloppes rouges qui permettent simplement les dons d’argents lors des fĂŞtes traditionnelles Chinoises (nouvel an Chinois, mariage, cĂ©lĂ©bration du premier mois d’un nouveau nĂ©…).
Le rouge symbolise la chance.

Le montant du don est important et souvent proportionnel au lien qui associe le donneur au destinataire. Les chiffres symboliques porte bonheurs sont bien Ă©videmment bienvenus. 888 Yuans est une somme tout Ă  fait favorable puisque “ba” (8) est très proche du “fa” (prospĂ©ritĂ©). Nous retrouvons le “fa” dans “gong xi fa cai” que les chinois s’Ă©changent lors du nouvel an pour se souhaiter bonheur et rĂ©ussite.

Petite prĂ©cision, il est important que le donneur note son nom sur l’enveloppe. Lors d’un mariage, les mariĂ©s recoivent les invitĂ©s dans le hall de la salle de rĂ©ception. Chaque invitĂ© leur remet en main propre l’enveloppe rouge tout en leur souhaitant ses voeux “Xin hun kuai le, zao sheng gui zi”. Nombreuses sont les familles Chinoises qui tiennent Ă  jour un livre des comptes qui leur permet de renvoyer l’ascenceur aux âmes gĂ©nĂ©reuses.
