Ten! Nine! ...Three! Two! One! Happy New Year! Ahh the countdown that signals the end of one very long, or for some, very short year. What better way to bring in the new year than by counting down with such anticipation?

New Years Eve and New Years Day are great reasons for close people to gather together and celebrate all the good that has happened in the past year, and to set goals for the next year, which are referred to as “New Year’s Resolutions.”

Partying the night away with good drinks, fun New Year's Eve party games, silly hats and noisemakers, you finally hear the news; the ball is about to drop! Everyone gathers into the room, and then the countdown begins.

At the cue of “Happy New Year,” everyone smooches the one they love and then the gathering often migrates outside for some awesome fireworks, more drinks, and whatever traditions they have come up with over the years.


What are your plans this New Year's Eve?

Sending Happy New Year Wishes

Much like any other holiday, we must think about those who cannot be with us during great times of celebration.

Let’s face it, as much as we want to gather with our entire families and all of our friends for every occasion, it is just not feasible for many.

Whether it is finances or time constraints, there is normally good reasons why you will not have everyone you love close by during the holiday season.

Although you cannot be with everyone you love, it doesn’t mean you can’t find other ways to be with them in thought. Doing things such as sending gifts, chatting it up on Skype, and sending greeting cards are all terrific ways to say “I’m thinking about you” during the times when you must be apart.

Can’t afford a gift and don’t have the internet? Sending a Happy New Year card still shows that you took the extra time out of your day to really to think of them!


What to Write in Your Happy New Year Card
