Here’s to YoU..Happy New YeaR!

Who will you spend New Years with?

It was once believed that you could influence the luck you would have throughout the coming year by what you did or ate on the first day of the year. new-yearani-uddy.gif

So, bearing that in mind I decided to celebrate the first few minutes of this brand new year in the company of family… You know..just in case. Heh.

It was also once supposed that the first visitor on New Year’s Day would bring either good luck or bad luck that would last the rest of the year.

So…careful who you first greet on New Years Day!

What will you eat?

Many cultures believe that anything in the shape of a circle or ring is good luck, because it symbolizes “coming full circle,” or completing a year’s cycle.

The Dutch seem to have the right idea and claim that eating donuts on New Year’s Day will bring good fortune. I’m in! food-cake.gif

Cabbage leaves are also considered a sign of wealth and prosperity, being representative of paper currency. So, if ya need more dough this year…boil up some cabbage!

What will you be toasting?

The song, “Auld Lang Syne,” written by Robert Burns in the 1700′s, is sung at the stroke of midnight in almost every English-speaking country in the world to bring in the new year.

As some know it is an old Scotch tune, ..”Auld Lang Syne” means “old long ago,” or simply, “the good old days.”

Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and days of auld lang syne?
For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we’ll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and days of auld lang syne?
And here’s a hand, my trusty friend
And gie’s a hand o’ thine
We’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet
For auld lang syne

Here’s to you sweet friends.
New and some auld acquaintances………

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
Hugs and midnight kisses to Y’all! girl.gif

    We’re going to celebrate at the local VFW. Plenty of the “right foods.”

    As soon as the midnight doings are over, we’ll drive the three minutes home and crash.

    “Happy New Year.”

    No new years resolutions. I plan to keep on terrorizing moonbats and sheetheads. Except Ali, he finally saw things our way.

  4. Angel says:

    I’m with my family. Nowhere I’d rather be.

    Happy New Year’s Day 2007 (open trackbacks)…

    I want to wish all my blogger friends and family a very happy, safe and prosperous New Year. An old Irish saying goes something along the lines of:”May the best thing that happened this past year be the worst thing that happens in the New Year ……

    I’m not superstitious and neither is my wife but to make my mother-in-law happy, we’re going to eat some cole slaw (contains cabbage) and some canned black-eyed peas. Without going into details, 2006 has been by far the worst year that my wife and I have ever experienced. We both pray and hope that 2007 will be better. I don’t think I can handle it if it’s worse than 2006.

    Love

    The new year is all in our hands….
    what will we do with it…
    remember its only days on a calendar, until we make them count.
    Tell someone you love them today….and tommorrow, and the day after….

    Happy New Year Angel!!

  13. Gayle says:

    HAPPY NEW YEAR, Angel! I don’t know about the donut thing; if eating something in the shape of a circle is supposed to bring one luck, I believe I’ll go for a bagel with cream cheese instead.

    Blessings, gal. Let’s hope that 2007 goes a bit better than 2006 for this world of yours and mine. :)

    Cabbage? YUCK! I’ve already had a go around with Ebyjo on today’s dinner. The compromise was that I get cole slaw as a substitute… :)

  21. Brooke says:

    Happy New Year, Angel! I hope you’re feeling spry this afternoon! :D

  24. Debbie says:

    Happy New Year. I spent yesterday and today with hubby. I’m so sick of football, ha. We had lots of rain yesterday.

    Bless you and your family. We’re having ham and all the fixings today. yum yum

  25. Right Truth says:

    What will the Dems do about Iran…

    Celebrations are over and it’s time to get to work. The United States has a plate full of problems that need immediate attention. I’ve been reading what the Democrats think our most important problems are. Unfortunately the Dems don’t include…

  26. stiknstein says:

    Angel…..
    Cabbage?…..That’s for St Patricks day…..

    Down where Stik lives we dine on Barbecued pork shoulder smoked all day and falling off the bones…….Collards with fatback slow simmered all day and a big pot of black eye peas simmered with country ham, salt and pepper. Add a big platter of fresh baked biscuits…and the only thing you can do is lay on the couch and watch football while your colesterol levels come back down……
    Why start the new year off with healthy food? You’ve got all year to lose weight.
    Come to think of it……do-nuts do sound better for you…..

  27. Martin says:

    It rained here too. Dang rain.
