Hugs and kisses with best wishes for the 2009!

Here’s a little list of the phrase “Happy New Year” in a few languages. This list from Freelang is the best I have found on the net, I changed or checked the languages I speak or know how to say “happy new year” in. Please feel free to include corrections in your comments.

I have put it in a table in Word but when I copy paste it I can’t seem to add the whole table, the lines disappear and only text show. And since I can’t tab, the columns aren’t lined up properly. Any suggestions welcome to fix this and actually put into a table.
