The New Year is a much, much bigger deal here than Christmas (which the Catholics and the Protestants celebrate on the 25th of December, and the Eastern Orthodox on the 7th of January, by the way). Christmas is more reserved – aimed solely toward spiritual reflection and the singing of hymns and the like.
The New Year is the time to give presents (or wait for Father Frost and his comely, sparkling Snow Maiden to drop them in your lap), see friends and family, and eat, eat, and eat. And drink. And be merry. So Merry New Year, actually. That sounds more appropriate than Happy New Year, if you’re here, that is.

I WISH I WAS THERE!!!!! My thighs are cramped from sitting at my computer for a week solid. The last time my thighs were this sore, it was from a much more stimulating and interesting activity….
С Новым Годом солнечко мое!!!!!!!
С новым счастьем!!!
or as Bridget’s brother has taken to saying: S novym scrotum.
…or Bridget’s mom : S novam glotum.
