That's interesting, I am not chinese neither I live in China, we have China Town here in NYC - a cool place - I got my little turtle there. I was in China Town on Aug 1st, passers-by congrated each other, some dude congrated me and my girlfriend with New Year in English and then in Chinese, which apparently we wouldn't understand, so I felt like congrat evey Chinese person here on forum with Happy New Year, and I wish everybody - Chinese, Turks, Brits, Yankees, Russians, etc - Happy New Year!!!
Wait for me in September I'd congrat everyone with Jewish Happy New Year!!!
