Last year I explained How to say Happy Saint Patrick's Day In Irish, so I thought I'd wish my Chinese friends a Happy New Year and tell you all how to wish your Chinese friends and colleague a Happy New Year in their native language.
|Happy new year
||新年快乐||Xin Nian Kuai Le||Shin nee-an quai luh
||New(Xin) Year(Nian) Happy(Kuai Le)
Chinese New Year is the biggest celebration in the Chinese calendar. Business usually shuts down except for restaurants. It is a time families to get together to celebrate the start of a new year. This year is the year of the Rabbit which is the fourth animal in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac.
China tends to have its own Chinese versions of social networking sites. Here is a list:
|Chinese Social Networking Site
||What Is It?|
||A Facebook-type social networking site|
|http://t.sina.com.cn||A microblogging site|
|http://kaixin.com||A social gaming site|
|http://youku.com||Video networking site|
|http://www.tudou.com||Video networking site|
|http://baidu.com||A search engine|
And so to all you Chinese, 新年快乐!
