Happy New Year!

This is about as close to confetti as I will come, sorry, you’ll have to settle for some already fallen leaves.

I hope 2010 brings you good cheer, good health, close family, and lots of success. 2009 was a hard year in a lot of ways, here’s hoping we can all start to come out of the darkness a little bit, maybe shine up that old optimism some, and take the new year out for a spin.

As far as resolutions go, look for a post on that to follow soon. Black eyed peas? Well, I’ve never been big on them (being from the north and all) but, yes, if it brings you luck and joy, why not, right? (Bring ’em on, I say!)

Happy New Year to one and all!

Until next…year this time…

    Happy new year to you Carol!

    I like your confetti of leaves better than the stuff they throw at midnight.

    Black eyed peas and confetti? These are Southern New Year traditions, I take it? We have the iconic sound of Big Ben striking twelve, the concept of First Footer (the first person to cross the threshold and bring good luck – usually the darkest haired male) and we have Auld Lang Syne, sung with hands held, arms crossed. Happy New Year!

    Black Eyed Peas-it's New Year's Eve! Gotta love the peas! Happy New Year, Mythopolis!

    Kala, Happy new year to you too! I love playing in leaves and, it would appear, so does Chase. He tends to eat them, but still play with them a bit too. :~)

    Hey Postcards! Happy New Year! I don't know that confetti is typical for New Year's other than they seem to throw a lot of it in Time's Square (where the ball drops.) Since the buildings and tall and the streets a bit narrow, it makes sense there. We don't have First Footer (that's cool actually!) and Black Eyed Peas, yes, totally southern. The folks up north don't even know what they look like. We also have Auld Lang Syne and then there's the "first kiss" of the New Year (when the ball drops or the bell tolls, you're supposed to kiss the person next to you.) Fun traditions aren't they?

    Happy 2010 everybody!
