Usage notes: How do you say "Happy New Year" in French? Bonne Année !

Par exemple…

Bonjour Aline, bonne Année !   Hello Aline, happy New Year!
Bonne année à vous et à tous les vôtres.   Happy new year to you and all of yours.
Je vous souhaite une très bonne année.   I wish you a very happy new year.

 Don’t say this until it’s actually the new year – the French find it very odd to be wished a happy new year while it’s still the old one.
