In Japan, there is an old custom. During the New Year's week, adults give money to children.
It is called Otoshi-dama. The money is enclosed in small pochi bukuro.
How much is inside? It depends on the guest.
So, if there are lots of visitors coming to the house, children get big amount of money.
In many cases, kids use some amount to buy their favorite stuff, then save rest of them in Bank.
