Since I'm sitting here by myself on New Year's Eve, now seems like a good time.
I have only one thought that is (barely) worth sharing. The rest are either too controversial, too personal, or too time consuming to explain right now.
So here it is:
While in town today, Nathaniel and I drove past the grocery store on who's sign read the words
Happy New Years
Nathaniel spoke just as I was going to voice the same thought:
The 's' is unnecessary.
Let's wish someone a Happy New Year or a Happy New Year's Eve/Day but refrain from saying Happy New Years.
P.S. I love that I have a child with whom I can laugh over grammatical errors that occur in advertising, that we can point it out and not have to explain ourselves.
P.P.S. Nathaniel and I did a concert at a
nursing home health care center today. My favorite moment(s)? When the 92 year old lady in the front row woke up to sing the choruses of "God Will Take Care of You" & "God Be With You Till We Meet Again" along with me. Her sweet, clear voice was a blessing to me.
Happy New Year from our house to yours!
