Hello 2011

Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!

This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!

I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!

-William Arthur Ward

Ever wonder what the lyrics to Auld Lang Syne are, or why we sing this song on New Year's Eve?  Look no further.  What about champagne?  Why is this sparkling beverage the traditional drink of choice for a midnight toast?  I hope you all had a wonderful time ringing in the new year, and I hope you ate your black-eyed peas and greens for good luck in 2011!  (More New Year's customs here.)
