Xin Nian Kuaile

This was my greeting this morning over the intercom when I was working at the front desk and received a buzz from the basement level entrance door to the temple, "Xin Nian Kuaile". It means New Year Joy or Happy New Year.
I suspect it was a little bit of a surprise to those buzzing who are accustomed to hearing "Wei" (sounding like weigh or way) which is the usual response on an intercom or telephone.
