Yeah, yeah, yeah...

Happy New Year already.

The way these people are going on about it, you'd think they never had to buy a new calendar before.

I've taken to calling it Change Your Calendar Day. Of course, I can take the high road here, since my calendar, which I changed in September, says today is the last day of the fourth month of the year 5774.

Who buys calendars? I get a fresh one every year from the Grand Lodge.

Happy 6014 A.L.!

I got a free calendar at the bank, one from my propane guy, and one from a friend's insurance guy.

The current page on my wall in the kitchen is April 2011. The page in the shop is sometime in 2005, I think.

Some people call today "Wednesday", and celebrate the new year in late October or November (Wicca), or a lunar new year in January or February.

Me? I learned that horse ages are counted as of January 1. So my birthday next summer notwithstanding, I think of myself as a year older now, than yesterday. It saves that awkward mid-year changeover.

The Yule tide makes a handy way to think of the old year dying, and a new year's coming rebirth, back at the Winter Solstice.

I notice that even many Christian Churches celebrate the end of the fecund year with a "harvest festival" about the time the Old Religion (Wicca) observes the new year.

Labor unions, now, they gots to have their calendars days in the contract, so new years has to be called out.

Blessed be,
and Happy New Year!
