(South China Morning Post) It is traditional during the Lunar New Year holiday for families and friends in China to exchange red envelopes containing money. How much they put inside, of course, is entirely up to them.

Based on seemingly anecdotal evidence taken from the app users’ personal entries, people in Fujian this year stuffed a whopping 3,500 yuan (USD 550) on average into each envelope they handed over, ensuring the province top spot on the regional rankings.


While it would not be unreasonable for Fujian residents to feel a degree of pride in their collective generosity, their average offering appears almost piffling, however, when compared to the largesse shown by people at the city level.


According to the poll, published on social media by developer Wacai, the prize for China’s most munificent metropolis went to Putian – coincidentally also in Fujian – whose residents somehow managed to cram 12,000 yuan into each overstuffed envelope they handed over.


In comparison, the residents of Beijing (average packet value 2,900 yuan), Shanghai (1,600 yuan) and Hong Kong (810 yuan) appeared decidedly parsimonious.


Back at the provincial level, the nation’s most frugal folk were found in Guangdong, which neighbours Fujian to the south, where the mean envelope value was just 50 yuan.
