FRIDAY, JANUARY 1ST 2016
HERE WE GO AGAIN!
Well it's happened again. We've
added another year to our world
calendar and sung Auld Lang Syne
in tribute to the memories of the
year gone by.
I hope you've had a little chance
to rest from you New Yea's Eve
celebration because January 1st is
a very busy day!
You may already be aware of
the Rose Bowl parade and game.
Or Philadelphia's Mummer's
But January 1st is also
Copyright Law Day, Ellis Island
Day, Global Family Day, and New
Year's Dishonor List Day.
If that's not enough, News Year's
Day is also "First Foot Day!" In
Scottish and Northern English
folklore it's believed the first person
to enter your home will determine
whether you'll have good or bad
luck in the new year. A tall dark
haired male is suppose to mean
good luck. (Not for him if he's
coming to my place!)
This is also Polar Bear Plunge
Day on which some either very
brave or very foolish individuals
jump into icy waters to celebrate
the new year.
It's also Euro day and "Z Day",
whatever that is.
I discussed all of these possibilities
with my Grandson who turns 5 months
old on the 2nd. We came up with an
option of our own. We call it a Nap!
Hope you have a Happy New Year
and that all your NEWS is good!
