Happy New Year!

The first day of the year is upon us and my son had a good observation about all the hoopla for this holiday. He wondered why people would want to travel, long distances in the cold, to watch a ball drop with thousands of other people around, when you can watch it on TV, in your jammies and, as he said, “We have a clock here! Why do you you have to travel to see the time change on another clock?” Well said.

And with that did we nestle in for the evening, comfortable in our pajamas and surroundings, and watched the festivities on the idiot box, welcoming in the new year in the warm glow of candlelight and Christmas lights.

Happy New Year to everyone, and may 2012 be a harbinger of all things wondrous, healthy and safe.
