Here's how to write Happy New Year in Chinese stroke by stroke. Make your own banners to decorate
your home or send greetings and blessings to friends and family and spread all that good fortune for the coming year!
The first one looks complicated but it really isn't, the strokes are simple, just follow the order slowly and carefully. This is the character for "New":
The second, Nián is the character for "Year", much easier, only six strokes!
The last two characters mean "Happy" or "Joyful" Kuài Lè, where Kuài is also the character for "Fast" or "Quick":
That leaves us with the last one Lè another easy 6-stroke character. (This is the simplified version)
And there you have it!
