Happy New Year! 新年快乐! Feliz Año Nuevo! !سنة جديدة سعيدة Bonne Année!

Can you believe it? 2016 is nearly at an end and the New Year is upon us. Champagne is chilling, resolutions are being made, and before you know it, it’ll be 2017!

In the spirit of ushering in the new, we took a look at our inboxes (past and present) and picked out some of our favorite email subject lines for the occasion: 20 for New Year’s Eve and 17 for New Year’s. Because let’s be honest, choosing 2,017 subject lines would just be crazy!

Countdown… 3… 2… 1…

Getting ready for the ball drop dominates NYE subject lines. And don’t forget the power of emojis! Use this last email of the year to drum up last-minute revenue, offer special sales, or simply wish your readers a Happy New Year:
