You might wonder what the Chinese New Year means if you don't know. This article will explain the origins of this Chinese saying and the meaning behind its use in Chinese culture. You'll also learn how to use it. Here are a few of the most common ways to say it.
The Chinese New Year is celebrated with fanfare and celebrations, including dragon dances, firework displays, fashion shows, and grand parades. Chinese will likely use "Gong Hee Fat Choy" to greet the New Year. It is becoming increasingly popular and is even catching on among non-Chinese speakers. Celebrities such as Dianne Feinstein and Bob Hope have been spotted saying the phrase publicly.
Chinese New Year is a time when congratulatory messages are prevalent. The phrase means wealth in Chinese. The American Heritage Dictionary defines it as "congratulations" or "accomplishments," which implies that the person who says it is well-off. Children will often tell others to bring red envelopes filled with money when they see them. Do you think you would like to hand someone a red envelope if they say Gong Hee Fat Choy?
Traditionally, the word 'xinnian' refers to a happy Chinese New Year. However, the word can also mean'shin nee-an-kwai le'. In Chinese, 'kuai le' is the same as 'le', but it is pronounced like'shin nee-an-fai-lok' in French. If you want to say "Gong Hee Fat Choy" to someone you don't know, you can use 'xin nian' or'shin nee-an-kwai le'.
Gong Hee Fot Choy, or "The Greetings of Riches" is a system of divination developed by the early twentieth century mystic and traveler Margaret Ward. While primarily Chinese in origin, Ms Ward drew upon the traditions of many cultures to produce this very unique form of fortune telling.
The basic tenet behind Gong Hee Fot Choy is that the good in the world vastly outweighs the bad. Therefore if someone studies their Gong Hee spread they will learn where the good and bad reside in their lives and use this information to ensure they reach their goals.
