How do you say Happy New Year in different languages?


happy new year 2022 with celebrations

Last time I got a wish from one of my employees who lived outside the United States. It was so nice to receive such blessings, but I struggled to understand what she said. Because I couldn’t understand a single word.

Confused? What did she say?

She wished me a happy new year in the polish language.

What is a Happy New Year?

Most likely you celebrate a happy new year every year with your loved ones, but have you ever wondered what it is? What calendar do we follow?

New year is the day when a new calendar year begins and the year increments by one. Celebration starts on the 1st of January because of the new year and it may differ in style, could be different in other countries, depending on the culture. 

Most of the countries follow a Gregorian calendar that is celebrated on the 1st of January. This was also the first day of the Roman Calendar and Julian Calendar. There are many other cultures who celebrate the new year on different dates (custom dates according to their rituals and their beliefs) such as Islamic New Year, Chinese New Year, or Jewish New Year.
