Chinese New Year

I found these red envelopes at a Chinese market. The tradition is to place dollar bills in them for children on Chinese New Year, preferably an even number. I thought they would be fun for the kids this year. Our plan is to celebrate Valentine's Day in the morning...heart shaped pancakes, exchange valentines etc and then celebrate Chinese New Year that evening...order take-out Chinese, throw some snaps (those noise maker things that you throw at the ground and they "snap" when they hit) and watch Mulan.
