I saw Vadim Antonov's "Happy New Year in 4 languages" program 
(http://www.gnu.org/fun/jokes/happy-new-year.cfbC.html) and
thought I'd write a similar program using Python.  Here it is:

#include <stdio.h>
#define fi int main(void){printf("Happy New Year!\n");return(0);}
#/* This code has the same effect in Python, C, C++, and bash.

if true :
        echo -e +"\bHappy New Year!"
else :
        print "Happy New Year!"; fi=0 #*/
