During NewYear's, Beijing needs you to wear earplugs. First things said first, consider the public offices to be closed but not restaurants or all of the shops. In fact that is when many people make lots of business including malls. If you're only concerned with visiting the Great Wall, take a whole day off or 2thirds of one and go to MuTianYu, instead of going to the usual BaDaLing area. If you feel like adding an hour or two, go to the farthest site reachable in one day which is gorgeous and is called SiMaTai. Chinese mostly, will flock the city's attractions although the traffic will be considerably tough.
