#734 Are you ready for a new sensation....

Have you decided to host a party to bring in the New Year with some of your nearest and dearest? It can be a bit of pressure to make sure you have everything from decorations to sparklers for the countdown. You may have decided to not hold a party but to have a quiet one at home and spend the time with your loved one, or calling it early for the night.  

New Year's Eve, with its emphasis on romance and indulgence, with all that glitter and sparkle is an ancient holiday with deep spiritual roots. For centuries, and in similar ways, people have been observing the end of one year and the beginning of another. Ancient Romans celebrated with six days of carousing that would probably be familiar to us today. St. Boniface, a missionary from England who visited Rome in 742, was appalled at how the Romans celebrated ''Kalends of January'', as the New Year was called, with "dancing in the streets, heathenish cries, sacrilegious songs, tables laden with food and women wearing amulets and offering them for sale." 

While each culture's New Year celebration has its own flavor, there are certain common themes. The period leading up to New Year's Day is a time for setting things straight: a thorough housecleaning, paying off debts, returning borrowed objects, reflecting on one's shortcomings, mending quarrels, giving alms. In many cultures, people jump into the sea or a local body of water-literally washing the slate clean.  In some towns in Italy, I've been told, you have to watch out for falling objects, as people shove their old sofas, chairs and even refrigerators out of their windows on New Year's Eve. 

Everything you do on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day is freighted with significance for the future. The American custom of spending the night with the one you love and kissing them at midnight insures that the relationship will flourish during the coming year.  

The coming of the new year is a time for reflection, of hope and love, and a time for everyone to celebrate one night of peace, hope, reflection and happiness.

Wishing you all a very safe and Happy New Year!!! <3
