with much health and happiness for everyone.
I think New Year’s Eve is my least favorite holiday of all. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that I am not a party person.
I don’t get the part about celebrating the fact that another year has gone by, when our time on this earth is so limited. I have learned to be thankful each New Year’s Eve that another year has gone by without any bad news (or Hiobsbotschaften as we say in German, a literal translation of which would be Job’s news).
New Year’s Eve celebrations in Germany culminate in fireworks and champagne toasts at midnight (or are just getting started at that point, depending on whom you’re hanging out with).
I’m not sure if I’ll stay up to see the New Year in, it will be here when I wake up tomorrow and I can greet it then.
Happy New Year, everyone!
