How to say Happy New Year in different languages

Published Saturday, December 31, 2005

The end of another year is here again. All around the world there will be celebrations with parties, parades and fireworks to send out the old year with a bang while bringing in the New Year. We all have to give thanks for making it through another year. This is the time that we should reflect on things that made us happy throughtout the year and other things that didn't quite go the the way we had planned it to be. However, we can learn from these past experiences whether they be bad or good to make the New Year even better. Recently I wrote an article on How to say Merry Christmas in Different Languages and was asked by some readers to do one on How to say Happy New Year in different languages. So, this has delayed me a little since I had to change my article theme for this week. The list below are listed according to language rather than the list of countries where the language is being spoken. The list below might not be a comprehensive one however, it will be updated when there are additions. Also, there is a Year In Review Section where you can read or reread some past interesting articles that I picked randomly. It is possible that you might have not read any of these articles depending on when you became a reader, visitor, stalker or how far you went into my archives. Now, while you are having fun and preparing to ring in the New Year with friends and love ones here is a list of greetings of how to say Happy New Year in different languages around the world.

Furkids:
Thank you very much :) I am a ware that you are very busy. There is going to be a time when we are all so busy that we have to put our usual daily stuff aside for awhile. Glad to have you back !

Have a successful 2006!

Amstaffie:
Thank you very much! :) Wishing you the same with much happiness and success!

In Estonian: "Head uut aastat!"

you should add a tilde to the n in feliz ano nuevo (the spanish) so that it reads feliz año nuevo....because currently you have people saying "happy new anus!"

Thankyou for the interesting information.
May I link to this page (New Year) and your webpage on my blog please?

Good day,
Astonishing work! This is the type of information that should be shared all across the internet.

Good day
