Draw up the New Year
In China, an envelope called Hong Bao, or Red Pocket, is offered by married couples to kids and unmarried grownups in order to ensure a happy life. Animosities are not held – the New Year asks for a fresh start between households, good friends, and others of the neighborhood. Firecrackers are triggered during the Festival of Lanterns to scare away fiends.
Off on the other side of the world, citizens of Scotland commemorate New Year with Hogmanay. Some towns exercise the tradition of establishing barrels of tar ablaze and rolling them through the streets. Symbolically, the old year is melted up and the new one allowed to get in. Like the Japanese, Scots believe good luck, good or poor, is determined by the first person entering your domicile, ideally a dark-haired guy birthing a gift. This resolution of good luck is referred to as first-footing. The Scottish song Auld Lang Syne, is sung at midnight on New Year’s Eve, a personalized duplicated throughout the world.
New Year’s Day
In the USA, people celebrate with a plethora of food and drink. The day is not total without transforming the television on for the world-famous Event of Roses Parade and, of course, the annual Rose Dish football video game. The old year is unwinding, shown by the look of Daddy Time, lugging his hourglass happy new year 2019 images of days left to the old year, his hair and beard long and streaming. It is time to restore once again.
Every New Year’s I evaluate what happened in the previous year and ponder what I want for the rest of this year. I read that the third week of January is when many individuals subside on their New Year’s resolutions. I do not make New Year’s resolutions, yet I do take part in the process of imagining what I desire for the approaching year and map out how I can get there. When I consider what I want in the New Year, I look at points that are tangible (a new auto), or a high quality I want to embody (peace). One approach I make use of is to make a Vision Board, which is an artistic expression of what I want in the New Year.
