2013 fast approaches and soon 2012 will be behind us. With anticipation we watch the ball drop with our loved ones and friends hoping 2013 will be more prosperous and less stressful then 2012. We can pray our country improves and make resolutions about our weight or quitting bad habits or saving money instead of needless spending but how did these traditions start?
What the devil are people thinking?
Will we do anything to drink, eat and be merry?
Something is about to burst.
The clock is crouching, dark and small,
Like a time bomb in the hall.
Hark, it's midnight, children dear.
Duck! Here comes another year!"
b). noun / phrase - a remarkable or notable year in history; a year of wonder or miracles,
used to speak hopefully of the future
