However you choose to celebrate this New Year, here's hoping that 2010 is a happy and lucky year for you!


Hi,

I'd tend to use "whatever" instead of "however" in the above. But I'm not sure if I'm right or not. Thanks for your opinions in advance.

    However you choose to celebrate is the manner in which you celebrate -- staying up past your bedtime, for example.
    Whatever you choose to celebrate would be the thing you celebrate -- the Giant Capybara, for example.

    In normal conversation, I think you want however.
