Of all things festive, the most popular activity of the Spring Festival was the passing around of virtual red envelopes. Amid the festivities, one should not forget that there is more to them than the exchange of money online. The most famous Chinese festival shows the meaning of life, love, traditional customs and culture. It creates an opportunity for family members to come together and communicate. In the past, people always looked forward to the Spring Festival for interesting traditional activities and delicious food. Although times have changed, customs and culture cannot be simply replaced by games like virtual red envelopes that don't necessarily carry the festive spirit. Society and the government must devise ways to appeal to the younger generation to make the celebrations more interesting.
