New Year

New Year’s Eve. All around the world, there will be people counting down to their own time zone’s midnight, raising glasses of champagne to their lips and toasting each other and the entrance of the new year. People will kiss, dance, rejoice in something that feels monumental to them. Some will be saddened, feeling the holiday season’s last gasp come to a close and thinking bleakly about the coming week which will be completely back to normal.

New Year’s Eve. A holiday of sorts that should mean something – the beginning of something new and the farewell to something old. It should be a time for resolutions and dreams, hopes and ambitions, fears overcome and disappointments shrugged off.

New Year’s Eve. It’s never meant much to me, honestly. It should mean a lot of things, but it never seems to live up to what I would expect it to be. It’s just a night like any other night, to me. I feel like we should always be ushering in the new and making resolutions and hoping for the future – not just one evening a year.

  1. I feel the same way about it. I’ve never done anything special on this night. Regardless,I hope you have a wonderful new year. I’m hoping for the best!

  2. Did you know that champagne has fallen way behind a sparkling wine from Italy? The quality isn’t close to champagne from what I understand, but it’s not bad, and a heck of a lot cheaper!

    Happy New Year to you, Em! You’re going to have a great year :^)

  3. We really should embrace each new day but sadly life gets away from us and we don’t. We’ve never done anything really special on New Years Eve either. I guess I figure I’d let all the other idiots be out on that night and I’d just stay home.

    Happy New Year to you.
