Remember what Bilbo used to say...

" It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to."

How do say " Happy Chinese New Year"?

OMG! I hear this said in different way, but the more I learned the more I missed something. Here is the break do of what I have learned.

Standard New Year Greeting - Kung Hei Fat Choy (Congratulations and Prosperity). Should be the first word out of your mouth when greeting friends and family or anyone for that matter.

Definition: 恭喜發財! Chinese greeting for Chinese New Year.
Pronunciation: gōngxǐ fācái
Also Known As: 新年快樂 (Xīnnián kuàilè)
The simplest of ways to show your well wishes for a prosperous new year is to say "gong xi fa cai" -- which means loosely "congratulations and prosperity."
 Chinese (Cantonese)Gung hay fat choy (a New Year greeting meaning, "May you become prosperous.")
Sun nien fai lok (meaning, "Happy new year")
What do I say? Gung hay fat choy
