Age-Reduce Money (Ya Sui Qian)

In old China, on the New Year Eve, people tied money together with color thread and put the money at the food of the bed. This tradition is no longer seen now. However, the more common way from the old time till now is that the older people give money to children. In this way, the older people think it can reduce their ages.
