Usage Note Icon Usage Notes:
We use the word "manigo" to wish people a New Year in Filipino:
Manigong Bagong Taon sa lahat! = A Prosperous New Year to all!

That's the standard way we say it in Filipino. We use "manigong" (manigo + na) almost only when we say this greeting. We just assume that it means "prosperous" for lack of any other basis on how else it is used.

You may also come across "Masaganang Bagong Taon", where "masagana" is a more common word that means "bountiful". "Masaganang ani" is "bountiful harvest" and "masaganang buhay" is "comfortable life".
