Xin Nian Kuai Le Chinese Characters
This phrase written in Chinese is 新年快乐 (xīnnián kuàilè) and means 'Happy New Year' in English. 新年 means 'New Year', while 快乐 means 'happy' or 'happiness'.Xin is new and Nian is year and thus Xin Nian (新年) is called as New Year.
Similar to that, meaning of the word chap goh mei is the lantern festival which is also called as Yuanxiao Festival (元宵节, 元宵節). This festival is celebrated on the last day (fifteenth day) of the new year celebrations of the lunisolar year and marks the closing of new year celebrations.
Kuai le (快樂) generally means happy, joy and its synonyms like delight and happiness etc. Thus "Happy New Year" in English is written as "New Year Happy" in Chinese: Xin Nian Kuai Le. We can notice that the words have jumbled and this is one of the peculiarity of Chinese characters.
