So, why do we celebrate it?
There are many reasons for which people all over the world celebrate New Year; the most common being the start of something new, something fresh. It could be as simple as fresh from failures, fresh from disasters, fresh from mistakes that would have been avoided, situations that weren’t in our control. It’s a day that gives us a chance to start things afresh and to change our approach so that we don’t mess it up this time. The day is also a reminder of our deeds of the previous year, including good and bad. But the most important thing is the lesson that it teaches us.
Victories must teach us how good we are at doing something and that we should keep doing to our best. Failures teach us where we went wrong and what we could do to improvise so that we don’t mess up again. Love and friendship – either lost or found will give us the picture of our attitude and how many people are there to care for us.
Got a resolution?
People are always expected to have a resolution that they could make on a New Year’s Day. This resolution is never meant to be broken though many find it extremely hard to keep up with it. So think of a habit that you must stop or a thing that you would do to make yourselves a better person. Let that be your resolution – to stop something bad or to start something good. Never ever back-down from your resolution – a commitment, compliance to a deed. In that way, the days would be good as they pass on.
The attractions of every New Year are the celebrations that engulf it. People go to the place they desire to spend that whole day. Some like it in a hotel, some in a party, some go meet their relatives, some like to laze around with friends and some people always prefer home to be with their loved ones. Similarly, each country celebrates in its own way. Some have parades, some have fireworks and some countries throw out a week’s festival. Countdown clocks at famous landmarks hype it up with huge crowds of people chanting the final countdown as fireworks explode and people embrace their loved one when the clock strikes midnight. It’s a day that everyone cherishes and Christine it in their consciousness for years to come by.
This is one day that transcends cultures, beliefs and religions to make that one day that the whole world celebrates. Be it India, China, Egypt, Russia, Australia, Europe, Japan, USA, Singapore, Brazil or London – people all over the planet relish the New Year and have a good time. There are iconic and unique celebrations in every major city around the world that makes the day fun filled.
So chart out a plan. Invite friends, family or even neighbors and organize a party or a toast and make everyone happy and let the day be the day you always wanted to celebrate. And, most all, spend the next day clearing out the mess!
