Regardless of how you celebrated holidays (or did not), and given that some cultures have their own New Years based on their own calendar, most of the world, at least for business purposes, recognizes the New Year of the Gregorian calendar. So "Happy New Year" is all encompassing, to all peoples of all countries.
I appreciate my readers and especially those who comment. So I say to all of you:
For 2016, may you have peace in your hearts, peace in your families, and most of all peace in your countries. Happy New Year.
