CNY wishes

Wishing all of you .....

大吉大利 (Dàjí dàlì) - 吉利 (jili) means auspicious, 吉(ji) means luck, 利 (li) profit so here's wishing you all great good luck and good profits.

三阳开泰 (Sān yáng kāi tài) means an auspicious beginning.  阳 (the sun) and 羊 (goat) sound the same and as 2015 is the year of the goat, this wish has become "三羊开泰" instead.

身体健康 (Shēntǐ jiànkāng) - wishing all of you good health

万事如意 (Wànshì rúyì) - 万 ten thousand, 事matters 如 as, 意 meaning so this means wishing everything goes your way.

心想事成 (Xīn xiǎng shì chéng) - 心 heart, 想 think, 事matters, 成 completed/done so here's wishing you all - may all your wishes come true (literal translation means whatever your heart thinks, it will be completed that way)

恭喜发财 (Gōngxǐ fācái) - 恭喜(wishing) 发(expand/grow) 财 (wealth) so wishing all of you great prosperity!

Many thanks to Wenn for the above red packets (红包).
