Survey: What Are You Doing New Years Eve?
There are sensible times for New Years holidays; Iranians and Bahai celebrate it with the equinox and spring in March. Jews celebrate it with the harvest, in fall. Celebrating it on January 1, simply because that was when the Consuls of ancient Rome assumed office, does not make much sense. Staying up late to celebrate the end of a pretty horrible year and the start of a difficult one makes even less sense. Or maybe right now what we need is a good excuse to get drunk.
