I must be a beloved patriot... no Chinese New Year for me.

For that kind of money, can I be an honorary Chinese? ;)

Wait...you're saying that for the new year, the Chinese custom is for elders to give large amounts of money to their children and grandchildren?

How do I convert?

:-D

TET is like Chinese Red Envelope. You will get it on Chinese new year (if you are still a kid or student).

<< TET is a Red Envelope. >>

You could not be farther off..You could try, but you'd be unsuccessful.

Tet is the Vietnamese Chinese New Year :confused:

I got a WHOLE $40! :p :(



EDIT: nevermind, it was $20 because my grandparents gave me $40 and half of it goes to my sister. :( :( :(
