Gong Xi Gong Xi (恭喜恭喜)

Happy new year! People like to sing this popular Chinese song to celebrate the Lunar New Year. New year's is my favorite holiday, and I love to sing songs to celebrate. We can congratulate each other by saying "Gong Xi! Gong Xi!" Because this is a celebration, it might get a little raucous. Annie Chen sings this one with me, while Gamin and Domenica play along.
