Gung Hay Fat Choy – Chinese New Year Song Domino Grey Redux

Chinese New Year is a spring festival, celebrated during our winter. It follows the Chinese Lunar calendar, and falls between mid-January and mid-February. The celebrations typically last for two weeks, although there are many different ways to celebrate. See the list of websites below for more information, and fun craft activities to do!

Happy Chinese New Year

Gung Hay Fat Choy – Chinese New Year Song
(wishing you good fortune and happiness)

Sing as a fingerplay with the simple hand motions, or pass out rhythm instruments and have children play on the chorus. Or you use as a circle dancing, holding hands and walking around on the chorus, and stopping to make hand motions on the verses).

Chorus:
(keep a rhythm patting hands together one hand up, then the other)
Gung Hay Fat Choy, Gung Hay Fat Choy
Sing Happy New Year, Gung Hay Fat Choy

1. The new moon tells us, exactly when
(hold up one hand in C shape for crescent moon)
To celebrate with family and friends (clap hands in rhythm)

2. Clean up the house and get out the broom (pretend to sweep)
Sweep out the old year, bring in the new

3. Bring out the apples, the oranges too (hold out one fist, then the other)
Their colors bring us joy and good luck too

4. The dragon dances, the lanterns light
(place hands together, and snake around )
The firecrackers light up the night
(alternate right and left fist out with fingers opening quickly to mimic shooting fireworks).

Original music and lyrics were downloaded from this website:

Instrumental version is also available.
