Happy 2015 everybody! If you’re trying to wish a Happy New Year to any Turkish speakers this year, this might help!
Sorry for the break in posting! Visiting family and a nasty cold will do that to you.
“New Year” will be Yeni Yıl, the literal translation, or perhaps Yılbaşı, the “start of the year” or “New Year’s Day.” “New Year’s Eve” would be Yılbaşı arifesi, the “Eve of New Year’s Day” or Yılbaşı gecesi, “Night of New Year’s Day.”
“Happy New Year” is Yeni Yılınız kutlu olsun! or “May your New Year be blessed!”
