Summary
Your office needs you! Promote this holiday to break the endless Happy New Year cycle!

You know the drill - we all trudge back to the office after New Year's Day, and every colleague greets each other with a "Happy New Year", whether in person or via email. And that's great, until two weeks later when it starts to grate!

What's the proper etiquette? When can you dial back the new year greetings? Without guidance, the "Happy New Year"s can continue for several weeks.

We suggest that the seventh working day in January is the cut-off point - it gives everyone a chance to get the new year out of their system. Some may say what about the folks who take a week off at the start of the year? We say, tough! - they clearly don't care about wishing you Happy New Year, and making a dent in their vacation budget in the middle of winter, seriously calls their judgement into question.

Let's promote this date, and let's use it to get any remaining new year greetings done and dusted for another year on No Longer New Year's Day.

No New Year's Day isn't only a holiday for grumps to revel in (otherwise, we would have called it Unhappy New Year) - it's also a practical approach. By the second week of January, we soon hit more New Year's Days anyway - then it gets super-confusing. For instance, January 12th is Berber New Year and January 14th is Orthodox New Year. And if any 'Karens' complain, remind them that is often Karen New Year in early January!
