As Spring Festival celebration approaches, our collective ears will be filled with New Year’s jingles hovering in shopping malls, non-stop chit-chat over family dinner tables, plus fire crackers loud enough to wake us from deep sleep. We want to add one more to our list of CNY celebration favorite sounds — greetings in authentic dialects by CS friends covering China far and wide. The 15 audio tracks below are only a small fraction of the 80+ dialects in China, but hopefully you’ll have a better feel how people extend their best wishes to each other.
Go ahead, pick your favorite and give it a try! Nobody has high expectations for our dialect abilities anyway. The key word is 羊 (yáng) or sheep, which becomes phonetically auspicious when (for the year of sheep, though without consulting the sheep itself) put in the popular phrase 洋洋得意 (yángyáng déyì) or feeling contented and fulfilled.

The religious festival of Holi, known as "the festival of color" or "the festival of love", is one of the most important dates in the Hindu calendar.
The day and night of celebrations surrounding the spiritual festival begin at the full moon in the Hindu month of Phalguna, the 12th month in India's civil calendar. It is known by a variety of names with "Holika Dahan" or "Choti Holi" marking the evening before, with Holi itself called "Rangwali Holi".
Falling between March 20 to 21 and celebrated principally in India and Nepal, Holi celebrates the arrival of spring, the fertility of the months that cast off winter, color and vibrancy. The day before Holi is celebrated with a bonfire rejoicing in the triumph of good over evil. However, the day is most visible around the world because of the colorful powder, called gulal, worshipers throw over one another at Holi.
A series of Hinduism's religious legends intersect at Holi. These include The Legend of Holika and Prahlad, The Legend of Radha and Krishna and The Legend of Kaamadeva, among others.
Perhaps the most famous of these is The Legend of Holika and Prahlad, wherein Prahlada defeats his father Hiranyakashipu, a demon king, and Holika, a female demon, ruling in his father's place and worshiping the Hindu god, Lord Vishnu. The Triumph of Prahlada over Hiranyakashipu, with Vishnu's help, represents a struggle between good and evil from which the festival is derived.
Here are ten Holi messages to brighten up your day (from bestmessage.org and dgreetings.com):
