    Question of next year

    Hi,

    I've received the following from a student:
    I look forward to the festival of next year.

    Of course I should tell her that we usually say, "next year's festival", but is it actually incorrect to say it the other way around, like she did?

    Thank you!

    Lelie

    Cannot see anything wrong with it but it sure sounds awkward, doesn't it?
