A sweet new year to everyone

What I don't understand is why people say: Happy New Year to all my Jewish friends! Everyone should have a happy new year, not just Jews! Hey, here's a happy new year greeting for everyone, except possibly Osama bin Laden.

Thank you for making me to clarify something for myself, on the subject.
Had some hint of unpleasantness, when reading on a good acquaintance's blog "Happy New Year to all who considers themselves to be concerned" - didn't know why it struck me as a very dividing statement, until I read your post.

When I had tried to explain, on that thread, that I think New Year is a holiday for everyone, no matter what nation/nationality he/she is, it's an indication of how many years the people's history go back in time - somebody noted that I should be dragged to the mental institution, as an exhibit of irreparable mental damage.

Which might be true, for all I know.
