WASHINGTON - "Happy New Year!" It's a phrase uttered often around the beginning of the year, but how far into the year should people say it?
A week into 2014, WTOP asked people on Twitter how long people can get away with saying it. Check out what users had to say:

@WTOP I said it yesterday. I'll probably keep going for another few days. :)— Patty Helms (@pattyhelms) January 8, 2014
@WTOP Letterman's been wishing people Happy New Year this week as a bit because it's already a joke, so there's your answer.— Richard Handal (@Richard_Handal) January 8, 2014
@WTOP today is the last day. Lol.— Nichole Targaryen (@nikkib1920) January 8, 2014
@WTOP today marks a week since 2014 began. That's the cut-off point.— Unnamed Person (@onshortrest) January 8, 2014
@WTOP wish someone a good day/evening, say God bless, or what-have-you, but Happy New Year gets stowed away.— Unnamed Person (@onshortrest) January 8, 2014
