I have been told that on Chinese new year they say to each other more than "Happy New Year." They say it automatically, like we say "Happy New Year," but what they say is "May you get rich."

Of course that's only what I heard. But it sure sounds a lot better, or at least much more useful, than "Happy New Year."

*Lynx pops the popcorn and sits down to wait for the "holidays are pagan" people to show up. These threads are like catnip.

“gong hei fat choy” is the most common Chinese New Year greeting in Cantonese, which is spoken in parts of southern China and Hong Kong. It directly translates to “wishing you great happiness and prosperity.” In Mandarin, the same greeting is “gong xi fa cai” (pronounced gong she fa tsai).

When I worked with folks in Singapore and Malaysia, this is the HNY greeting they used.

Best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low stress, non-addictive, gender neutral, winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most joyous traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, but with respect for the religious persuasion of others who choose to practice their own religion as well as those who choose not to practice a religion at all.
A fiscally successful, personally fulfilling, and medically uncomplicated recognition of the generally accepted calendar year 2000, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions have helped make our society great, without regard to the race, creed, color, religious, or sexual preferences of the wishes.

Short version, have a happy non-denominational winter season. And to be sure to keep the politically correct half smile on your face when you say it.
