History of the Chinese Full-Moon Celebration
According to Chinese custom, when a baby turns one-month-old, a celebration is held to commemorate their first month on Earth. Since this coincides with the end of the mother’s confinement period, both her and her child are formally introduced during this time.
A party is held to celebrate the baby’s health and offer blessings. In traditional ceremonies, cakes and eggs, dyed red to symbolize good luck and fortune, are given to family and friends.
Traditions include shaving a baby’s head and dressing them up in gold-colored attire to “presenting” them to their ancestors at the family altar.
A gift card can be included inside your greeting card to show your generosity and thoughtfulness to the parents of a one-month-old baby. A gift card is great because it allows parents the flexibility to buy their favorite products.
