Certainly one of the holidays one must psych oneself up for is New Years. For it does not take much observation to discover that Jan. 1 bears an extremely close resemblance to Dec. 31. I worked at home -- working ON the home, that is -- ALL day, extinguishing all traces of Christmas past, until enough days pass that we are ready to welcome Christmas once again. Takes a full revolution to do that. I don't think we are ready for Christ to come again sooner than a year from now, anyway.
