Happy New Year, New Year’s, or New Years? How to Wish Someone Well This January 2024


The beginning of a new calendar year brings with it a sense of optimism and possibility, making it an ideal time to spend with friends and family. With the correct New Year’s cards, you can let the people who matter know that you’re thinking of them on New Year’s Eve, whether you’ll be together to celebrate in person or far apart. While wishing someone a “Happy New Year, New Year’s or New Years!” isn’t too much to ask, a simple “Happy New Year!” could work, but there are many other, more interesting ways to express your best wishes for the coming year, depending on the person to whom you are sending them.
