Why do people say that their child is one years old or happy new years? Why add the S? If you are one year then how does the s make sense? And 2011 is one year so why say years? lol just curious cause it bugs me
The phrase "one years" is just incorrect, but people don't pay a lot of attention to grammar. The term "New Year's" is actually possessive as in New Year's Eve, which is when most people really celebrate. It all goes back to people not retaining all of those grammatical rules that they spent at least ten years learning. And my kids wonder why they have to do the same thing year after year.
