Did you know?: Certain kinds of money in certain envelopes for special occasions
According to Japanese tradition, you are supposed to present certain kinds of money in certain envelopes when you attend a wedding, funeral or memorial service.

Red and white for weddings, black and white for funerals – now, don’t forget!
