While I was doing my celebrating earlier tonight, I was thinking why do we even do it all anyways. Sure, it's a start of another new year, but many of us change our ways because one change of a digit on our calendars tells we should. If it's a celebration of getting through another year in tact, why don't we have similar events? Why not hold first of the month festivities? I don't think the majority of us know why to go to our lengths to get smashed for this occasion; we just do it.

One word: Tradition


None of them make any sense if you look at them logically,our calendar doesn't even make any sense.The new year begins just as winter gets bad where I live,so it never feels like a new year,it never sets in until spring gets here and nature comes back to life.

Because it only comes once a year.

Trudat, as do Christmas and Birthdays, I like to get plastered on both of those occasions.

Hm... very true, but correct me if I'm mistaken: Doesn't every calendar day come annually?

See I don't buy that, if it's an excuse to get hammered why don't we all agree to do so on the 10th of the month...or make March 27 a day to do the same because that only comes once a year..

Well yes, but how many new years are there in a year? There's 364(?) new days every year. Why celebrate them?

Doesn't the majority of the world (specifically american swine) get plastered daily anyway?

I could give a rant about how it's pointless how we celebrate integer increments of our orbit as measured from an arbitrary point in space and time, but then this man showed me the light.

That means we have 36(5) new years?

Well, no. Unless you're looking it in a circular fashion like "It'll be a year until this day happens!"

New Year is just celebrating the start of a new calender I think.

True, but it doesn't seem to make much sense, logically speaking. My point being, New Year's is considered the day marking Spring, rebirth, and all that good stuff, correct? However, the calendar is much, much closer to being: Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall. As opposed to Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter. Do you follow?

No it's not the start of spring though. The start of Spring is April I believe. Our calender was created by the Romans who divised it by reading the stars. It's not a seasonal thing.

I think.

Well, let's leave it at this: it's a completely unorthodox and unneccisary holiday, and is quickly losing it's importance and impact on worldy youth and their New Year's dreams. Let's start a group for celebrating New Year's on a chosen date OTHER than January first?

Meh means nothing to me. It never has. Christmas didn't mean anything to me this year. Then again, I'm slowly growing apathetic to everything.
