On this page we've got the top ways to greet Mandarin and Cantonese speaking people during the Chinese New Year period, which is from Chinese New Year's day up to the 15th day of the Chinese New Year. The first three are from a more traditional point of view. The second set of three (the "hottest") are the most popular ones this year.
Usually you only have to greet people like this the first time you see them in the new Chinese calendar year, and after that you can return to normal Chinese greetings.
'New Year happiness!'
'New Year goodness!' (like "Good day.")
'Pass the New Year well!'
'New Year goodness!'
'Happiness and prosperity!'
'step-by-step high promotion' — A steady rise to high places! — "on the up and up"
