Spring Festival is around the corner, and many people have drawn up their holiday plans.

A recent survey which covered over 2000 people shows that 85 percent of people will spend the Chinese New Year's Eve together with their parents and 51 percent of people will prepare the New Year's feast with their family. Also, 57.3 percent of people will watch the Spring Festival Gala while 45 percent of people will give and receive Hongbaos, the red envelopes through their mobile phones.

Chen Tao, a respondent who has been working in Beijing for three years, has decided not to go home for Spring Festival this year. He says family reunions are good, but big holiday gatherings also bring familial pressures. Being pushed to get married is inevitable and it's hard for Chen to face his parents while he still doesn't have a girlfriend.

Traditionally on the eve of Chinese New Year, the Spring Festival Gala is a necessity for most families. However, some people think the show is not as attractive and interesting as it used to be. Around 26.5 percent of people say they just accompany their parents to watch it.

Red envelopes or Hongbaos are also an essential New Year element in China. But these days, hongbaos have entered the digital era and people are full of enthusiasm about giving digital hongbaos through Alipay and Wechat. As Internet giants like Alibaba and Tencent have been ready for this year's "Hongbao War", people are also prepping themselves for what's to come.

If 85% of people spend New Years Eve with their parents then most married couple must spend it apart, think about it.

It is very fun to grab red envelopes among friends and relatives on mobile phones. However, we should spend more time to accompany our parents and children.
