    What is the difference of "Happiness Station and Happy Station"?

    Dear Sir,

    Could you please tell me about the difference of " happiness Station (TV station) and Happy Station", Please? and Why we say Happy New Year not Happiness New year? Which one is correct?

    Thank you in anticipation.

    Best regards,
    Piak

    hi,
    you cannot say (happiness new year)
    (happy new year) is the correct one,
    (happy) here functions as an adjective. while happiness is a noun.

    Re: What is the difference of "Happiness Station and Happy Station"?

    Thank you for your reply, but how about happy station and happiness station? What is the difference of them? In what case should I use each of them?

    And also Happy and happiness New Year. Does Happy New Year mean the New Year is happy, isn't it?
    While another one "Happiness New year means New Year of Happiness, isn't it?
    I know, we normally say "Happy New Year" but you probably happen to hear "Happiness New Year" , What would it mean and does it make sense or not? That is my point.

    Kind regards,
    Piak

    You could use either with 'station'. The noun suggests it causes happiness and the adjective that is shows happy things.
