How to say happy new year in Chinese?

Here're three ways:

1. When you greet ONE person face to face, you can say 新年快乐 (xin nian kuai le)
2. When you greet a group of people, like a teacher greeting his/her class, you may say 祝大家新年快乐 (zhu da jia xin nian kuai le)
3. When you write to someone, such as a friend or a classmate, you can write 祝你新年快乐 (zhu ni xin nian kuai le) on the botom line.

There're some other expressions you can use to replace 新年快乐 (xin nian kuai le): 心想事成 (xin xiang shi cheng) wish your dreams come true, 一帆风顺 (yi fan feng shun) everything will be going well.

Chinese celebrate new year with lunar calendar ,but not solar calendar.
So February 7th 2008 is the day of New Year.
