Gung Hay Fat Choy Meaning, Translation and Pronunciation?

What is the meaning of the Chinese words Gung Hay Fat Choy? What is the correct translation and pronunciation?

I think the words express something like "Happy New Year" in Chinese but I'm not exactly sure.

I'm learning Chinese at school but we're just dealing with basic language stuff for now.

Where did the Gung Hay Fat Choy phrase originated in China and how do you write it in Chinese?

The Cantonese dialect "Gung hay fat choy" means "恭喜发财" in common spoken Chinese, and also means "May you come into a good fortune" in English. The exact translation is debatable.

In Chinese, you can also say the words Sun nien fai lok, meaning, happy new year.

The two-week celebration of the Chinese New Year begins Feb. 2, the eve of the new year, which in the lunar calendar is 4709.
