There was a brief time when New Years Eve was one of my favorite holidays. This phase of my life parallels, no, overlaps the brief period of time when I wanted to stay up late but wasn’t usually allowed to. On behalf of children everywhere, I felt it was my duty to make it to midnight on New Years Eve. It was suspenseful. It was a frightening thriller!
Now – not so much.
Like a lot of holidays, New Years Eve just doesn’t seem to have the same feel to it. Watching people freeze their butts off to watch an apple-like chandelier drop just doesn’t seem to have that same ole feeling attached to it. And then there are those darned resolutions. Nobody likes those.
Truth is, I get much more excited about birthdays than I do about New Years Eve, which is why I was so excited that the awesome Nancy Davis suggested this topic! I mean, first of all, it’s a special day just for you (and the millions of other people who have the same birthday). What could be better than that? But there’s more to it than just the customization factor.
