Wow what a Christmas that was, I hope Santa Clause brought you a snow shovel over 51 inches at my house. This must be the first time in living memory that lower mainlanders have welcomed rain. Those of you who wanted a white Christmas that’s it for 20 years or 50. Let’s hope the New Year is better from this point on.
I got to thinking about all the Happy New Years I got while shoveling snow. I know of at least 2 other dates that are celebrated as New Years day The Julian (Ukrainian) one on Jan 13th, you really should be in Saskatchewan for that one and of course the Lunar (Chinese) New Year so I thought I would look up some others. I was surprised to find that we can celebrate a New Year over 100 times in 2009 every month there are some New Year days.
Well I wish you all the best for 2009 and Happy New Year, when ever your day is.
