Words to greet someone this Chinese New Year
This coming year is the year of the dog. I am scratching my head because a dog’s life isn’t exactly the nicest wish on someone.
I had some help from the internet and indeed there are lots of well wishes.
Photo: I am using the picture of a shisa, a mythical lion-dog from my trip in Naha, Okinawa.
From the bark of a dog that sounds like prosperity.
Gǒu nián wàngwàng wàng
Wish you a prosperous year of the dog
Shí quán shí měi
Wish you perfection and beauty in everything
犬 is another word for dog and sounds like 全 meaning complete.
I am a little late on my Mandarin on Mondays this week. Been hectic.
