First of all i would like to say, HAPPY NEW YEAR to YOU, and good luck in 2013!
Did you have fun last night? Last night i ate turkey with my mum and my grandmother, which means we were actually 3 generations together. It was kinda nice, I got to talk to my grandmother about how she used to celebrate new years eve when she was little. She is now 88, so i guess she has some stories to tell. The turkey was perfect, so i can say that “The last meal” was successful.
After watching the kings speech, a friend of mine and i decided to play “the lost diamond” (den forsvunne diamanten). Unfortunately he had more “luck” than me, so he won 2-1 (I would like to say i let him win, but i guess its not a good idea to start 2013 with a lie). After loosing the game by “small margins” I needed something sweet, so we decided to tear down the gingerbread house! I thought i was strong enough to break it with my hands (not a good idea) so i smashed my fist onto the roof. The house stood still as a rock, but my hand was damaged (there is actually a scar on my hand today, note to my self for next Christmas “think before you act”). So after we found something hard to break the house with, we could enjoy a few pieces of the walls and the roof (considering the size of the house and the pieces left today, i can say that i deff ate to much gingerbread last night).
Do you have many traditions on new years eve? I don’t really have many tradition on new years eve, but i guess there is one that i have done all my life. When the clock gets closer to 00.00 we always go out side to watch the fire works. Fireworks are fun to watch and i kinda feel like a little kid, lighting up when i see the different colors on the sky. Its fun to think about at all the different cultures and the different traditions that people have. Did you know that in Spain, many people eat 12 grapes counting down til 00.00? I think they have to put one grape in the mouth every second until the clock hits 00.00. Do you have or know about some special new years eve traditions? If you know a special tradition that is suppose to give good luck, please write it here as a comment. I would love to try something new next new years eve.
New Year’s resolutions? Did you make any? We always say we will eat less and train more, and yeh, we do…………..! For like the first month………….. and then we slowly fall off. I think that this year my new years resolution will be to spread more joy, and be thankful for all the things i have and enjoy life and try not to be so worried about everything (Lets see how long i can keep this one).
So… 2012 is over and 2013 has just started! Some people say 2013 is going to be awesome, others say its going to be bad. Do you think 13 is a lucky number or a bad number? No matter what people say, a new year is always a year with new opportunities. A new year is in total 365 days, which means that you can wake up 365 days and have 365 new opportunities. Even if you have 65 bad days, you can still have 300 good once!
A new year gives you an opportunity to start something new. You can forget the old year and only concentrate on the new! We can always start something new, but when there is a new year, it gives you and extra kick and some extra energy. Unless you can predict the future, you never know what will happen, and that is some of the excitement of living everyday!
So, if you are still there, HAPPY NEW YEAR AND GOOD LUCK IN 2013!
Bring it on 2013!
