Just 21 days left for the crazy people to prepare themselves. I really don't know what drives them so crazy on that day. We have 365 days in a year but people tend to celebrate only on the first. I see so many funny things with this New Year celebrations. People take resolutions on this day indicating that new year will bring good fortune, I don't know what fault they find in the remaining 364 days to take a resolution. I have seen some of my friends taking decision by the 9th or 10th month, but will wait till the new year to start implementing them. Calender is formed as a reference which can solve so many confusions around the globe. People mistook it as something else and celebrate the whole night. My other observation is that everyone wants to welcome the New Year and stay awake till midnight. They think it is something special, but no one is ready to do their routine on that special day and sleep till noon due to the overnight's tiredness.
If we rewind 25 years, most of the occasions would be missing as considered to the present. If people keep growing the list of festivals and celebrations in this pace, even 365 days wont be enough. I don't know who started these stuff, but nothing seems to be under control as the years pass by. I am afraid where it is going to take the world in the future.
I strongly believe that people who are uncertain of themselves are the ones who blame the planets and other such things. Every day is a new one and auspicious enough to achieve. So rather waiting for an occasion and the position of the planets to start our work, we can believe in ourself and start good work on any day.
I expect a decline in this years celebration as compared to last year. Don Know how things will pan out this time.....
