Chances are, according to where you are in the world or what you faith is, you don’t celebrate Christmas. Another holiday might take its place for you. Or, you might celebrate it differently: in Japan, it is celebrated as a couple’s holiday, much as Saint-Valentine’s day. You could also celebrate it, but without paying any attention to its religious origins.
The same goes for New Year’s Eve. The year doesn’t begin on the same day everywhere, at least traditionally speaking.
No matter if or how you celebrate Christmas and the New Year, I want to take a minute to wish you all the best for 2013. I also want to thank you for your readership and for taking the time to give me feedback. Fellow bloggers, thank you for the wonderful blogs you write.
Finally, this time of the year is one when I try to be with family and friends, appreciate how much they matter to me, relax and be merry. No matter what your take on Christmas is, it’s always a good thing to spend time with the people who matter the most to you.
Have a nice holiday everyone!
