Isn't it true? And if we stopped doing the two things, the tradition is lost. And usually it's the kids who are over excited about it because when you grow older, you began to feel shy to do it. Carrying lantern is because you are afraid people will laugh at you while taking ang pow is because you don't want people to ask you, "When getting married?"
I regret not getting a battery lantern because my mum said, "So old already, you think you are a kid ar?" Too honest this lady.
