Sorry I wasn't able to express my questions clearly (because of my poor English). Please allow me to ask one more question.
Sure, ask as many as you like!
(if 'this time of year' refers to the New Year's holidays)
Which one of the following two sentences makes sense?
1. We like to talk about our New Year's resolutions at this time of year.
This one does. "We like to ..." is simple present tense, used here to mean an unvarying fact that applies to all years.
2. We'd like to talk about our New Year's resolutions at this time of year.
This one doesn't really. It could be grammatical, but no one would say it. The reason is this: it combines an expression that refers only to the present/future ("We would like to ...") with one that applies to all years, including habitually, the past ("at this time of the year").
