My life in Colombia
Welcome to the blog of Chip Wiegand
New Year's Eve - why do people "feel kind of sad"? That is what I hear from people, even right now on CNN the talking heads are saying that. I don't understand it. I don't feel sad. I've never felt sad at the changing of the year. I don't understand why people would feel sad for the year changing. Why don't you feel happy that you have another year to look forward to? Another year to maybe make changes in your life.
I haven't stayed up to midnight on New Year's Eve for many years. Not even when Cheryl was still with me did we stay up to watch the fireworks, not every year. One year she and I drove down to Nogales to watch the New Year fireworks there. It wasn't much, of course, being such a small town, but it was different from the norm, and we enjoyed it.
If I remember correctly, Cheryl never talked about being sad at the changing of the year. And in my childhood it was never a time to be sad. I just don't get it - why are people sad at the changing of the year? If anyone can explain please do so in the comments box at the bottom of the page.
About the picture above: That picture is of the New Year's Celebration in Cartagena..
For me, the changing of the year is a happy time, and tonight I go to bed with a smile on my face because a dear friend sent me a video of her speaking in English and wishing me a great new year.
