Lucky envelopes

Here was what happen in the first day of the Chinese New Year, I got up early in the morning, without doing anything to myself I went straight to the kids’ room and got my four children up, I said “It’s Chinese New Year now!” Everybody was so excited, they hurried up wash themselves, and then we got to the kitchen table for the breakfast. We were having Chinese New Year food today. Before everybody started to eat, I reached in my pocket and got out a pile of red lucky envelopes, I handed them to my children one by one. At this moment, I had a flashback in my mind, I felt like I was my mother, doing what she was doing decades ago. But this time, it was happening in a different generation.
