Chinese New Year Greetings: Lucky Phrases and Meanings

wishes for the new year in english

The German expression, "Frohes neues Jahr" literally translates to "Happy New Year." It is widely used in German-speaking countries, particularly in the northern and western states of Germany. Indeed, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day are big holidays in Germany, with events ranging from fireworks to "Rummelpottlauf," where children (or adults) go from house to house singing silly songs and begging for sweets (or schnapps), to parties as well as special drinks and foods.

But if you have family or friends in Germany or German-speaking countries to whom you want to send New Year's greetings, you may find yourself struggling to find the right words. Sending such greetings can be challenging, especially if you want to get creative.

Creative New Year's Wishes

You may find yourself writing a card or even an email to a German friend or family member with New Year's wishes. But you likely want to avoid writing the same New Year's well-wishes year after year. Try some of the following more poetic and creative ways of wishing a happy New Year to a friend or loved one. In order to make the English greetings flow, some of the translations are not literal.
