Suppose it is the first day of New Year, and some people are going to give a speech at a function.

Do we say:

There will be New Year addresses OR

There will be New Year's addresses?

Thanks!

"Suppose it is the first day of the new year …." In the English-speaking world, the celebration of the new year lasts only one day (well, one and a bit if you count New Year's Eve). The holiday is New Year's Day, spelled thus, so you question becomes "Suppose it is New Year's Day, and some people are going to give a speech at a function."

This one. "New Year's" is a common short form of "New Year's Day".

Please help. Thanks!
