Gong Hei Fat Choy 農曆新年

Hey, Happy Chinese New Year. Even though we westerners celebrated the Gregorian New Year just 25 days ago, I'm up for any excuse to party. Sadly I can't get the time paid off from work.

May the year of the Ox be a good one.

Some sites

More on Google.

Since you linked it from wiki:

Quote:
simplified Chinese: 恭喜发财; traditional Chinese: 恭喜發財; pinyin: Gōngxǐ fāci; Hokkien: Keong hee huat chye (POJ: Kiong-h hoat-chi); Cantonese: Gung1 hei2 faat3 coi4; Hakka: Gong hei fat choi, which loosely translates to "Congratulations and be prosperous". Often mistakenly assumed to be synonymous with "Happy new year", its usage dates back several centuries. While the first two words of this phrase had a much longer historical significance (legend has it that the congratulatory messages were traded for surviving the ravaging beast of Nian, although in practical terms it may also involve surviving the harsh winter conditions), the last two words were added later as ideas of capitalism and consumerism became more significant in Chinese societies around the world. The saying is now commonly heard in English speaking communities for greetings during Chinese New Year in parts of the world where there is a sizable Chinese-speaking community, including overseas Chinese communities that have been resident for several generations, relatively recent immigrants from Greater China, and those who are transit migrants (particularly students).

San Nin Faai Lok!!

More Cantonese speakers moved to Canada, I suspect with Hong Kong being a British territory it was easier to leave than the mainland.
