A few characters have special meanings, and need to be written differently. From the SDK documentation, you get:
< (less than) &lt;
> (greater than) &gt;
' (single quote) &apos;
" (double quote) &quot;
& (ampersand) &amp;

So the code you need looks like this:

  QBObject1.ObjectType = "List"
  QBObject1.ObjectName = "CustomerMsg"
  QBObject1.AddProperty "Name", "Merry Christmas &amp; a Happy New Year!"
