I also don't plan to stay up until midnight. In fact I expect the New Year to creep in quietly while I am asleep. Does it matter if I miss the fireworks, or the parties or the watch-night services? Not a bit.
A few days ago I met a friend who said something along the lines of,
'with the economic forecast as it is how can we welcome the start of 2013'.My off the cuff reply was,
'I suppose the same way as we welcome every new day throughout the year'.I'm still wondering what I meant. How would you interpret that?
