Understanding The Chinese Psyche

Huat Ah!

It is a Hokkien (Fujian dialect) term you will hear a lot during Chinese New Year. It goes with the Chinese obsession with prosperity and luck in the form of riches via a windfall. Chinese folks like to gamble, be it at home card games, on mahjong tables or at casinos. So "huat" is like a clarion call and a good luck greeting.
