Today marks the Chinese New Year. The Chinese year 4709 begins today; it is also the year of the rabbit.
In China, the New Year is a time of family unity. Last year Jamie Zhang, our Senior Accountant, who speaks Chinese, taught us how to say Happy New Years in Mandarin.
Here’s a review:
Guò nián hǎo!
Happy New Year! (This is the more traditional greeting and can only be used for the Chinese New Year)
过 (guò) – to spend time
年 (nián) – year
好 (hǎo) – good
This year we would like to wish a Happy New Year from our family here at Mango, to yours!
