This will be one of my most self-debated, (should I or shouldn’t I), posts to date. It’s guaranteed to be the top controversial and I may even lose followers because of it. I’m sure my husband will shake his head and wonder why I shared this with the world, but I’m tired of pretending…
I don’t believe in New Years Eve!
Okay that’s that factually inaccurate. I know it happens, I see everyone celebrating, heck I’ve even been to many parties over the years. Though each time when midnight struck and people whooped and kissed, I’d be trying to find the best place to hide so I wouldn’t have to fake enjoying that moment.
I never got it.
I don’t follow any religion and time was invented by man to make life easier. So why do we need one night to be the catalyst to launch our changes?
If you want to lose weight, do it when you think it.
Want to work harder, work harder right now.
Need a major change in your life, what’s wrong with April or July?
January 1st is no different that any other 1st of the month, it’s another day to pay bills, cook dinner, take out the trash. Alright, I do enjoy not having to work for the man because it’s a holiday, but that’s how I treat every holiday.
Social media makes these times hard on people with troubles, depression or losses, and it just annoys those like me. I’ve already had to play the happy wishes card. Dec 31 – Jan 1 will be the worst.
I play along because I’m polite, and I do care about peoples well-being, only I care EVERYDAY! Not just once a year.
Now that my peace has been spoken, you can still enjoy my books here!
Facts if you want:
New years beginning
In pre-Christian Rome under the Julian calendar, the day was dedicated to Janus, god of gateways and beginnings, for whom January is also named. As a date in the Gregorian calendar of Christendom, New Year’s Day liturgically marked the Feast of the Naming and Circumcision of Jesus, which is still observed as such in the Anglican Church and Lutheran Church.
