(1) Me, too!
(2) As the moderator told us, both are used by native speakers.
(3) Nevertheless, I respectfully suggest that you use "New Year's." Why?

(4) If you use "New Year," some people will ask themselves: Is that correct?
(5) I think, however, that eventually "New Year" will "win" the competition.
