As I scrolled through all the excited Happy New Year wishes on blogs and facebook. I spend each year at this time wondering what the fuss is all about. I've just honestly never understood the big deal. The calendar turns over. So what?
Now, I'm not stupid despite what you might have heard. I understand it's the symbolic idea of casting off the past and looking forward with hope to the future that looms before us. It's renewal, rebirth. We have shifted the celebration of life renewed to the New year as opposed to the arrival of Spring which many of our ancestors used to serve just this same purpose.
So if this time of year is special to you, then I wish you a Happy New Year.
