(Meant in a lighthearted way)This just came up as an option on predictive text. I've heard people say it and it seems it's a thing. I find it really annoying. Anyone else?

No idea what you're talking about, sorry!

You mean instead of "New Year's"?

Or instead of New Year?

It's an appalling shortcut for New Year's Eve which should be Hogmanay anyway.

I hate it and always want to ask "New Year's what?"

It's either 'New Year's Eve' or 'New Year' IMO. 'New Year's' is an American expression.

YANBU, it's New Year, or New Year's Eve/Day.

Well we always call it Old Year's Night, rather than New Year's Eve. (Scottish). grin

I like that bless. Love your user name too.

I always thought it was American

Thank you! New Year's Day is often pronounced 'Neyerday' up here too. Tend to shorten everything! (It's actually Old Year's Nicht rather than 'Night' to be strictly correct). Looking forward to it now...

Same here, Bless

But yes, OP, hearing "New Years" sets my teeth on edge.
