New year's eve is coming. It's my favorite holiday of the year. It's not a big commercial holiday and it's something we can all celebrate together regardless of religion or culture or political view. It's a time to appreciate our lives, and to think positively towards our future. It has no history attached to it, because each year is its own unique focus on the present. We are encouraged to kiss each other, smile and cheer. We can celebrate without any rituals or fanfare or drama, or we can celebrate with parties and fun times.
2008 is going to be a good year. I can feel it. Many smiles to be had. Many successes to be shared.
This is my favorite time of year, because of New Year's. Because this time, more than ever, we are reminded to simply love and appreciate life.
