Happy New Year or Happy New Year’s?

Should we say “????? ??? ????!” or “????? ??? ????’?͇!”? ??????: Always say “Happy New Yea?”, with ??
“s”!

Many of us ??????????? say “Happy New Year’?!”, because we hear ??????? phrases such as: “On New Year’s, I usually spend time with my family” , or “What are you doing for New Year’s?” These phrases are correct because we are implying either New Year’s ??? or New Year’s ???. We use ‘? here because we’re referring to a specific day, not the whole year 2020.

The following article from ??????????.??? further explains when to correctly use New Year vs. New Year’s. Many of us use the incorrect phrase, whether English is our first or second language. Check it out!

So, Happy New Yea?! Also, enjoy New Year’? with your friends and family 🙂
