I’m with Seth Godin:

I don’t like New Year’s. Faux merriment, excessive drinking, ridiculous resolutions and general malaise. Not to mention Dick Clark.

It’s not because I don’t like drinking, it’s just because I like to drink on my own terms. These “big expectations” days annoy me. EVERYBODY. We are GOING OUT TONIGHT. We are GOING TO HAVE FUN. It is going to be CRAZY.

    I’ve been following you for a few weeks now–I totally agree with this post. I always feel guilty/depressed if I don’t live up to the expectations described above. I kind of resent that…

    Yup, generally if I see people going one way, I go the other.

    Also, Dick Clark has 1.972 feet in the grave. They should stop trotting that man out for NYE, it’s so sad to watch.

  3. Hi,

    I do agree with you. We have our own way of celebrating events and we have our own festive moods!
