Chinese Festivals - English Vocabulary


#1

The challenge:
Who can think of the best English translations for these Chinese words for some lesson plans for Chinese festivals?

xiang bao (fragrant packages) - the things kids whear around their necks at Dragonboat Festival
(forgot the Chinese) - red bits of paper with good luck phrases people stick on their doors at Chinese New year

To sweeten the deal I’ll throw in 100 karma points from my vast reserves to be divided amongst those who give me the best suggestions.

The red things are Lunar New Year couplets. Dunno about the other one.


#3

xiang bao - sachet

Hess uses that one in a book, not that that makes it official, just another suggestion
