God of Fortune is Coming, A Chinese Song Of Happy New Year
Today is 30 Dec,2008. New year is coming!
I specially choose one of my favorite Cantonese song named “God of Fortune is Coming” for all my friends. Hope you a happy and lucky new year!
This song is somewhat classical. You can hear it everywhere in Cantonese area during Chinese new year season.
Chinese like God of Fortune(财神 in chinese) very much. “The God of Fortune is coming” means a great beginning of a new year.
As Chinese tradition, On the eve of Chinese New Year, almost all the Chinese will invite the God of Fortune to their house. Chinese believes the God of Fortune will bring them wealth and good luck throughout the year.
From the lyrics, The God of Fortune tell us:
- A good people will always have good luck;
- We should gain money with legal way;
- You should work hard, So that the god of forune can notice you;
- When you hear this song, you will forget all the trouble things;
This song was written by Sam Hui, The best known star in the Cantopop and movie industry in Hong Kong from the 1960s to 1990s. This song was published in 1978 and soon became the symbol of Chinese New year song.
Hope it bring a happy new year to you!
