Different languages in different alphabets have always facinated me. How can someone read information from those beautiful decorations? Does someone who does not know the English alphabet see the same decorative beauty (I doubt it.)? I looked for a list of translations of "Happy New Year" into different languages and alphabets, but I couldn't find a simple "Happy New Year." What I found at http://www1.ocn.ne.jp/~infinite/pages/_Earth.htm is close. "May peace prevail on Earth" is a pretty good New Year's wish, no?
So, yes, may you all have a beautiful, peaceful, and prosperous year filled with...
and blessings of every sort!
