Happy New Year's

Rather than attempting to deal with the hectic commercialism of a Christmas holiday, or attempting to substitute another holiday for it, I opt to bypass it altogether and focus on the coming New Year.

Although it marks a purely arbitrary demarcation of the timeline, the celebration of the New Year wonderfully combines two aspects -- personal reflection upon life past and life to come and public festivity among friends.

And so, I wish everyone an opportunity to enjoy both as the winter season begins.
