Happy New Year!

January 1st, 2009

It’s January 1st 2009 and I wish all three of my readers the best of health and happiness for the coming year.

However, I think I will start campaigning to have New Year’s Day moved to December 22nd.

Think about it.

December 21st is the shortest day of the year in the northern hemisphere. On December 22nd the days start getting longer, so what better day to start the new year?

I appreciate that it’s the other way round in the southern hemisphere, so all of you on the other side of the equator should celebrate new year on 22nd June.

    Very kind thoughts appreciated muchly from this side of the equator and happily reciprocated.

    A happy healthy 2009 to you, sir!

    (Just a thought – what happens if your’e from the wrong side of the equator? Are you a pariah, deemed too uncouth to associate with those from the right side? And who checks up on these things anyway?)

    Ah, the lingering leftovers in the brain….

    No, it would just mean that on 21st June it would be the same year on both sides of the equator, but then on 22nd June it would be different years.
    I think.
