What are these Characters?

I didn't realize it was traditional because the girl is from mainland China.


Mainlanders use traditional characters when they want something to have a "special ring" or to stand out. Names of stores and names of products sometimes are written in traditional characters, even on the mainland. That's probably why this new year greeting was written that way. To mark the words as being for a special occasion.

They’re in traditional characters but it may be a particular style of calligraphy. I had a hard figuring out what the last two characters were despite knowing both of them. In particular, note how different the third character 亨 is from the standard way of writing it.
