Happy New Year!

Wow!  Another year come and gone.  In a few short days we’ll usher in 2017, saying goodbye to the successes and failures of 2016 and making celebration and plans for a wonderful and bountiful New Year.

Traditionally, in accordance with the Georgian calendar, we celebrate New Year’s Eve, counting down to midnight and ‘ringing’ in the New Year as the clock strikes 12.  New Year’s Day is used to catch up on sleep and getting a start those New Year’s resolutions.

The celebration of the New Year is as different and diverse as there are places to celebrate it.  The ball drops in Times Square, in Scotland Hogmanay is a wild celebration, in other areas champagne or fireworks are used to welcome the New Year with a bang!

 

To all Happy New Year, may your dreams come true in 2017!
