No Auld Lang Syne For Moi

For me, one of the downright silliest celebrations is New Year's Eve. I make it a point willfully not to watch the clock. Some years I go to bed early. At other times, I curl up with a good book.

In truth, every night is the eve of a new year. The past day is slipping behind us and the next day is the beginning of the next 365 or 412 or 1,822! Since none of us knows what our tomorrow will bring, we're never certain if we will make to the next night. Me thinks if a person is going to celebrate December 31, then it makes just as much sense to celebrate February 13, June 28 and November 1.

So, celebrate 12/31/08, if you must, but also try to celebrate each and every day of your life.

  3. Have you ever read 'The Tao of Pooh'? It's the book that first got me interested in Taoism, it explains Taoism through the stories of Winnie the Pooh. It mentions the time when Pooh went around wishing people a happy Thursday. A great book.

  5. Actually November 1 is Samhain, the Celtic new year or end of summer.
