Commonly stated by the class goofball while on their way out of the classroom before winter break.

Since the break goes through new years day, the jokester is stating that the next time he greets you, it will be a year ahead the last time he saw you.
jack: Wow bye guys! Cant wait for christmas break!

Sean: "See you next year"!

jack: We need to stop hanging out.
