Spring Festival Greetings
The Chinese New Year is often accompanied by loud, enthusiastic greetings, often referred as Jíxiánghùa, or loosely translated as auspicious words or phrases. Some of the most common examples may include:
Treasures fill the home!
Business flourishes !
Peace all year round !
Wishing you prosperity!
Harmony brings wealth!
The country flourishes and people live in peace!
Money and treasures will be plentiful !
Promoting to a higher position Safe trip wherever you go!
Wish you happiness and prosperity in the coming year!
Some would pay a New Year's call by a "thumbnail," meaning to send text messages through mobile phones. Others make calls to exchange New Year's wishes. Still others will send their New Year's wishes via the Internet.
