In a formal way, such as proposing a toast or writing a Chinese New Year card, you can add some beginning words before your Chinese New Year greetings, and combine one or two or more Chinese New Year wishes in a sentence.
Greeting an older (or respected) person is a little different in Chinese: nín for 'you', instead of the common nǐ. For example:
祝您…… (zhù nín) - Wish you... (to an older/respected person) ...
祝你…… (zhù nǐ) - Wish you… (to a younger person or informally) ...
For example:
祝你新年快乐,大吉大利,万事如意!(Zhù nǐ xīn nián kuài lè, dà jí dà lì, wàn shì rú yì) - Wishing you a happy new year, good luck, and all the best!
