New Year's Eve brooches

I get cranky with the adoption of Americanisms in the Australian language. "New Year's" is an expression that has crept into our language in the last 10 years or so. I know that language evolves, but in this and several other cases, I think it has simply gone backwards.

We have taken on America quite a bit. Even living in America, sometimes it is still easy to speak like one. For example: "A party of two." The latter can roll off my tongue when lease expected. I celebrate the new year on NYE (being today, as at the time of writing this). I celebrate New Years Day on NYE.
Was meaning to say having lived in America...sorry...
I am with you.

For those of us who are Australians, (not all live in OZ who answer on here).

As the Americans are proud to be American, why? can't we keep what is our's.
One word........................ 'Television'.

We are indoctrinated into mainly the bulk of what we see and hear on t.v.

That's your culprit right there.!
For us it is just another day!
New Years Eve - celebrating New Year's would mean celebrating the day of the 1st of January to me, when usually I would celebrate the night before, the "eve" of the new year.
We celebrate New Years Eve with friends and family
New Year's Eve...I didn't realise this was a contentious issue...
