Friday/ ‘Happy New Year’ one more time

Friday, and a rough week it was with long work days.  It’s the last day of the new year’s week, and hopefully the firecrackers at night will now draw to a close as well (it wasn’t really all that bad, though).

So .. ready for today’s Chinese lesson?  Here’s ‘Happy New Year’ in written Mandarin with an analysis.  Another case where a combined set of characters mean something special, or different from each one on its own.

I work tomorrow, but I will try to find something interesting to snap with my camera.
