In France, we wish people a Happy New Year in person, by mail or email nowadays.
We’re much less likely to wish a Merry Christmas. We do in person, let’s say, if we meet someone on Christmas Eve or before the holiday break.
Our standards are that we can wish a Happy New Year to people until the end of January though it’s much nicer not to wait that long.
When do you wish people a Happy New Year in your country?
