Unlike the 1st of January’s New Year celebrations, Chinese New Year celebrations are marked by all kinds of practices that are considered auspicious for the upcoming year. Called the Lunar New Year or Spring Festival,  it is customary for people to greet each other with New Year well-wishes which bring blessings for the coming year. 

In this article, we give you some very friendly websites where you can send Chinese New Year greetings cards or ecards.

Conclusion

Wealth  and money are highly valued in Chinese culture. It is therefore very common that people offer money-related greetings in the New Year. However, there are some instances where the recipient won’t necessarily appreciate money sent directly to the recipient’s bank account. Hence, people often send greeting card or ecards most especially those offered by charities.
