New Years Eve

Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and days of auld lang syne?
For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we’ll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and days of auld lang syne?
And here’s a hand, my trusty friend
And gie’s a hand o’ thine
We’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet
For auld lang syne

(Dec.30) Today we're celebrating. . .  Oh My! Day

Oh My! Day

‘Twas the day before the night before New Years begins
Is it true? Can it be? That we’ve actually run out
Of silly festivals? Goofy names? A daily holiday drought?

There seems nothing left to celebrate
And we’re darn petered out!
We’ve done Blah Blah, zucchinis and a great apple pie.
But Oh My!? Oh My!? Oh My My My My!

Is it possible on this 364th day of the year
We have nothing to celebrate, no jollies, no cheer.

So on this day before the night before a new year begins
Let’s celebrate this new one. Oh My! Come on friends
But Oh Why you may ask? Oh My!? But Why?
And the Sulu proclaimed – “OH MY!”
That’s why!

Tick Tock Day
Have you accomplished all you hoped for this year? Honestly – who has? Well you better hurry ’cause time’s running out.

But you’re in luck – there’s still time to get it all done before the year is gone. But ‘ya better get going. And quick.

Oh. And Good Luck!

When Does the Tree Come Down?

Friday, December 28th, 2007

I received an email this morning asking when to take the Christmas tree?  I thought I’d share this in case others might have the same question.

When does the tree come down? Before the first of the new year or leave it until the new year?

I believe that’s strictly a personal decision.

Some people put it up on the 24th and take it down on the 26th. Some remove the tree by New Years in order to start the new year off without any “old baggage” from the past year. 

And it also depends on whether you have a live or artificial tree. Some might want to get the dead – live – tree out of the house sooner than someone with an artificial tree.

As for myself - we take our tree down after January 6th – Three Kings Day – the 12th day of Christmas. A family tradition since – umm - forever!

So there are no rules. Its up to you and whatever family traditions you have.

No Interruptions Day
No phones. No computers. No television. No buzzers. No beeping. No ringing. No noise. No bother. No Interruptions!

Its time to just sit back and rest. Just turn the world off today and enjoy the silence. Recharge yourself and prepare for the new year.

The 2nd Day of Kwanzaa
The 2nd day of a week long festival celebrating the African American people, their culture and their history.

On the second day the black candle is again lit, as well as the farthest red candle on the left. This represents the 2nd principle of Kwanzaa – Kujichagulia (koo-jee-chah-goo-LEE-ah): Self-Determination
