Chinese Cultures

As Chinese New Year approaches, we welcome the auspicious Chinese New Year of 2024, marked as the Year of the Dragon, symbolizing a year full of vitality and strength. During this festive season, families exchange greetings and well-wishes on family house visitings, following cherished Chinese New Year traditions. Be it the annoying/beloved uncle and auntie, your grandparents or even your parents, we have a phrase for everyone! Use this as a guide to bless others the right way this Chinese New Year and collect all the red packets you can to spread the joy!    Follow along as we discuss and learn some of the common Chinese New Year greetings to use this Chinese New Year! 

Blessings from Elders

爷爷奶奶|外公外婆 (Grandparents) 

🌟 身体健康,万事如意 (shēn tǐ jiàn kāng, wàn shì rú yì) 

Good health and may everything go smoothly. 

😄 笑口常开,事事顺心 (xiào kǒu cháng kāi, shì shì shùn xīn) 

May your laughter be constant, and everything go according to your heart's desire. 

🏮福到家门,幸福绕身 (fú dào jiā mén, xìng fú rào shēn) 

May fortune arrive at your doorstep, and happiness surround you. 

When it comes to our grandparents and elders, health is wealth in their old age, and wishing them good health is the biggest blessing that they can get! It is also customary to wish them happiness and good fortune, as their one wish is probably to be happy and have the fortune to watch their children and grandchildren grow up into fine and respectable people.

Blessings from Family

爸爸妈妈|叔叔阿姨 (Parents, Uncles, and Aunts) 

💼 工作顺利,心想事成 (gōng zuò shùn lì, xīn xiǎng shì chéng)

May your life be fulfilling, and all things go as you wish. 

🌺 笑口常开,青春永驻 (xiào kǒu cháng kāi, qīng chūn yǒng zhù)

🎉 财源广进,步步高升 (cái yuán guǎng jìn, bù bù gāo shēng) 

May wealth come pouring in, and success be yours step by step. 

When it comes to your parents or uncles and aunties, extending wishes for success in work, fulfillment in life, and great fortune proves to work in every occasion as they are focused on their careers and finding fulfilment. For your newlywed relatives, throwing in a cheeky 早生贵子 (zǎo shēng guì zǐ) may also earn praises if you know that they are trying for a baby!

Blessings for Students

🐯 学业有成,金榜题名 (xué yè yǒu chéng, jīn bǎng tí míng) 

Academic success, making it onto the honor roll. 

 When it comes to your younger cousins, and relatives who are still students, you may focus on joyful growth, academic success, and a bright future when saying your Chinese New Year greetings. The metaphors of sailing and flying dragons represent smooth progress and high achievements. The hope for joy and completeness reflects a wish for a well-rounded and fulfilling academic journey.
