What does gong hei fat choy mean?
Although many people associate this phrase with Chinese New Year, gong hei fat choy doesn't mean Happy New Year.
The greeting is frequently used at this time of year but it actually delivers a wish for prosperity to the person you say it to.
It is regularly used as a seasonal greeting in professional environments.
Gong hei fat choy is the Cantonese way of saying the phrase and in Mandarin Chinese, it’s gong xi fa cai (pronounced gong she fa tsai).
