New Years Eve – I just don’t get it

Well, another year is drawing to a close, and the media et al are full of the usual end of year special reports: What happenned, who happenned, where it happenned, etc., etc.

I just don’t get it. Actually I never really got it. All this hoopla about the end of the year has always left me cold. Not to mention the eternal boredom of the media end of year excess.

If one were celebrating something of a real milestone, I suspect that I might see the point, but the end of the calendar year has no real significance in the life of anyone, except maybe the income tax department.

Renewal has nothing to do with the flip of a calendar page, any more that the tick of your watch is in any way transformational in and of itself.

Renewal is singularly and only related to ones place in the Kingdom, and what each new day (irrespective of the the time of year) brings in that saga. The calendar is unrelated to that as far as I can see.
So for the new years party (lower case you will note) I just have to say yawn.

On the other hand, maybe I am missing the point massively. If so, someone please ‘splain it to me asap…
