In a couple of days, we shall be seeing in the new year. In our society, this has become a cause for great celebration. The thing is; I just don’t get it. I have never celebrated the start of yet another year. In the western world, the date was set by the Romans; Julius Caesar, to whit and why we should find this exciting, is beyond me. Call me a stuffy, old bat but I liken it to Guy Fawkes night…obsolete and pointless. At least Christmas, though ruined by commercialism, has its roots set in religion. As far as I am concerned, every day I wake, is cause to celebrate, on a personal level. Okay, grumble over, Pen.
