(New Year's Eve Thai Style. Lighting the Khom Loys or hot air balloons)
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
A few pithy thoughts to usher in the year.
Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man. ~Benjamin Franklin
New Year's is a harmless annual institution, of no particular use to anybody save as a scapegoat for promiscuous drunks, and friendly calls and humbug resolutions.
New Year's Resolution: To tolerate fools more gladly, provided this does not encourage them to take up more of my time.
An optimist stays up until midnight to see the New Year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.
Cheers to a New Year and another chance for us to get it right.
