Gong xi fa cai! Health and Happiness to you all!

Happy Chinese New Year to all of you! 恭喜發財,紅包拿來

The traditional greeting for the Chinese New Year is, “Gong xi fa cai!” Which roughly translates as, “Congratulations and be prosperous!” I found the Chinese text above on Wikipedia. It actually says, “Congratulations and be prosperous, now give me a red envelope!” Referring, of course, to the red envelopes given as gifts for the new year.
