Gong Xi Fa Chi from Radio Romania International

Gong Xi Fa Chi. Or, best wishes for joy and prosperity in the coming year. Normally I expect this Chinese New Year greeting from countries with a Chinese speaking community. But, Radio Romania International? Never.

To my surprise Radio Romania International did indeed send the above Chinese New Year eCard. The next question is why? It might have something to do with a recent reception report submitted to the Chinese language department at Radio Romania International. To say the least, it is a rare and novel greeting from Europe.

Incidentally, Chinese New Year 2015, the Year of the Goat, falls on Thursday, 19 February. Gong Xi Fa Chi.
