Merry Calendar Change!!
It's New Year's Eve again, WHOOPEE! Actually, more like *woot*, this year. I can't seem to get excited about it. It's become nothing more than a money grab and propaganda fest for the alcohol producers, ie giant corporations. And the trickle down to hairdressers and the like, not to mention taxi companies and calendar makers. Everyone has commercials with their silly sales, buy your car now and save!!! It takes away from the meaning of New Year's Eve/Day, the arbitrary split second we as a society have chosen on which to end and start our year.
New Years is just so commercial these days. Everyone gets dressed up really nice and goes out to get roaring drunk, grabbing and kissing complete strangers as the clock strikes midnight. It's like some kind of drunken pagan orgy of booze and bad breath, gross old men taking their only chance of the year to kiss pretty girls, wet lips puckered and glistening with old man spit.....yuck!!! And they always try to do a full frontal body contact kiss....*shudders with revulsion*.
And what the hell does Auld Lang Syne or however you spell it even mean?? What language is it? Irish? I bet it is, if you sing it with booze in your hand, it's got to be Irish. At least most Irish can't aford doorcharges on a night like this, one of the good things about New Year's Eve. No riffraff.
Stupid traditions, superstitions that you will burn in Hell for, what has happened to our society? You won't get lucky if you eat cold black eyed peas, it's yet another example of advertising that has been melded into our traditions and it makes me sick! If you believe you will get lucky, well that's witchraft and it will leave a stain on your soul that can't be washed off unless you REPENT.
Sigh. Oh well, at least it's a chance to show off my new heels.
Happy New Year's All!
