We welcome the year of 2015.

The above sentence is written by my daughter.

I think it should be rephrased as follows:

We welcome the year, 2015.

Am I correct?

    I would say:
    We welcome the year 2015.
    We welcome 2015.

    I don't see "We welcome the year of 2015" being wrong; it's just that I would drop "of" myself.
