In just a days time, we'll be celebrating Chinese New Year, welcoming the year of the Rooster!
It's a tradition to give out ang baos (red packets) on Chinese New Year. A red packet is an envelope-liked gift given out during holidays or special occasions - they often include money inside. Here at HabboBites, we'd like to show our appreciation by giving out red packets to all our wonderful friends!
We want you to experience the spirit of Chinese New Year! From today till the 31st of January, all HabboBites members will be entitled to their very own red packet - you can open one every day!
Character on the red packet
The chinese wording on the red packet represents 'Fu' which means 'Luck' or 'Fortune'. Fú is almost universally displayed upside-down. The reasoning is based on a wordplay: in nearly all varieties of Chinese: the words for "upside-down" (倒, Pinyin: dào) and "to arrive" (到, Pinyin: dào). Therefore, the phrase an "upside-down Fú" sounds nearly identical to the phrase "Good luck arrives".
