The concept of New Years Day actually escapes me.
At one moment in time, midnight on Dec. 31, a magical line is drawn. The old year is on one side and a new year has dawned on the other.
That magical line means that all of the old things (that were considered bad) are in the past and everything is new.
Good riddance 2013! Welcome to a new life in 2014 post after post on Facebook reads on New Years morning.
To me this is nothing but some sort of superstition.
For some reason, as humans, we believe the New Year marks a fresh beginning and all the bad things that happened last year cant get us now.
Its like a flu shot against bad Karma.
Neener, neener bad luck you cant get me now because its 2014.
Really? If I remember correctly werent the same people declaring that 2013 was going to change everything? Wasnt 2012, 2011 and 2010 also some years that we left lying in the dust when a new year dawned?
