Happy New Year 2019, New Year’s Day via @PatFurstenberg #HappyNewYear #HappyNewYear2019 #Pentatonix #Music #FeelGood #TuesdayBlogShare

Happy New Year! I hope you will choose to focus on the future and its endless possibilities! You can “ kiss the past away ” and be the Kind or Queen of your own world!

New Year’s celebrations can be traced as far back as the times before Christianity spread. Although during the Roman era the month of March marked the beginning of the calendar and the year, it was Julius Cesar creating the Julian calendar that set the New Year where we know it today.

But whatever you do this January 1st, don’t let social convention dictate what you do, rather choose what feels best for you.

New Year’s Day  – lyrics

Tonight, the apple falls in time
We’ll sing along with Auld Lang Syne
And throw confetti high up into space
Tomorrow morning when we wake
This town will be a different place
And the past will wash away like coffee stains
We could be kings of the world
On top of the nation
It’s a celebration of the moments to come
The city’s on fire
We’re holding up lighters
Raising them higher and we’ve only begun
Take me all the way (oh)
Hear me when I say (yeah)
Let’s kiss the past away
Like New Year’s Day
Take me all the way
Hear me when I say
It’s time to celebrate
Like New Year’s Day
We’ll play it back in slow rewind
And laugh about the cold and bitter nights
We’re [?] our way on maps of stars
Hold on tight to fragile hearts
And keep our friends forever by our side
We could be kings of the world
On top of the nation
It’s a celebration of the moments to come
The city’s on fire
We’re holding up lighters
Raising them higher and we’ve only begun
Take me all the way
Hear me when I say
Let’s kiss the past away
Like New Year’s Day
Take me all the way
Hear me when I say
It’s time to celebrate
Like New Year’s Day
Morning breaks, take my hand
Wide awake with arms wide open
Catch your breath, walk this way
No regrets on New Year’s Day
Morning breaks, take my hand (kings of the world, top of the nation)
Wide awake with arms wide open (it’s a celebration of the moments to come)
Catch your breath, walk this way (city’s on fire, holding up lighters)
No regrets on New Year’s Day (raising them higher, we’ve only begun)
We could be kings of the world
On top of the nation
It’s a celebration of the moments to come
The city’s on fire
We’re holding up lighters
Raising them higher and we’ve only begun
Take me all the way
Hear me when I say
Let’s kiss the past away
Like New Year’s Day
Take me all the way
Hear me when I say
It’s time to celebrate
Like New Year’s Day
Take me all the way
Hear me when I say
Let’s kiss the past away
Like New Year’s Day
Take me all the way
Hear me when I say
It’s time to celebrate
Like New Year’s Day

8th Day of Christmas Haiku: Eight Maids a-Milking

Hay on the shed’s floor,

Steamy, barny-odour milk.

Last star shies away.

~

Happy New Year 2019!

La Multi Ani!

Gelukkige nuwe jaar!

Bliadhna mhath ur!

Blwyddyn Newydd Dda!

Bonne année!

Bliain nua fe mhaise dhuit!

Today Christianity celebrates the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of Jesus.

In older versions of “12 Days of Christmas” the maids a-milking were hares a-running and even hounds a-running or boys a-singing.

The eight maids a-milking might simply represent the goodness of the dairy products, so sought after during the Middle Ages when refrigeration was not an option.

7th Day of Christmas Haiku: Seven Swans a Swimming

Plumed water lily

Gliding shyly away. Swan.

Odette, not Odile.

Happy New Year 2019!

Hogmanay is celebrated today in Scotland, with the first stroke of midnight, so Slàinte Mhath!

Catholic Church celebrate Pope Sylvester today – in many Central and Eastern European countries New Year’s Eve is called Silvester.

Swans have been associated with the supernatural world by Egyptians: swan statues have been discovered in royal burial chambers. Egyptians successfully captured many of these birds during their migration and acclimatized them to the weather conditions along the Nile.They must have looked so elegant and graceful gliding with their white bodies over water and singing – more beautiful as they grow older.

Greeks, too, have a mythological story or two involving swans, perhaps the best known and most controversial being that of Leda and the Swan, in which God Zeus took the form of a swan to seduce his beloved Leda, Queen of Sparta – and thus Helen of Troy was born.

King Edward of England took his knighthood vow in Westminster Abbey on 22 May 1306 together with 266 other esquires eligible for knighthood on two swans, ‘The Feast of the Swans“. Apparently the swans had golden and crowns and since then swans have been associated with monarchy.
