    a birthday card for a girl

    I am preparing a birthday card for one of my friend. I want to write it like this:

    I wish you an enjoyable evening and a prosperous, fruitful, joyful, bright…new year.

    I want to put as many adjectives as possible between "a" and "new year", but I don't think I have enough words for that. Would you please give me a list of adjectives, which you think might be appropriate in this context? Thanks very much! :)

    In ordinary language, we shouldn't put too many adjectives here- there are few examples of more than five being used. I would suggest,therefore, that you either choose a few carefully or go to the other extreme and list dozens of them.
    prosperous, successful, rewarding, joyful, fulfilling, memorable, happy, peaceful, etc.
