Translation: My Chinese New Year Prayer

The Spring Festival is the Chinese New Year! China's civilization and history are thousands of years old. I like learning Chinese culture and characters! I pray for the happiness of the Chinese! I also pray that my parents are healthy, my family is prosperous, and my family is happy! Happy Chinese New Year!
