“Yes, I wish you a Happy New Year . . .

HpyNY

 . . . Celebrate within reason and be safe.”

Spirit of a Multi Cultural Observance

Humans benefit by marking time, celebrating anniversaries, observing milestones and pausing to reflect and renew especially on New Year’s Day no matter which calendar, tradition or cultural observance they use.  Here in the U.S.A. we have inherited the  “Gregorian Calendar” or “Christian Calendar”  with all the influences of Roman and Roman Catholic culture incorporated.  The latter classifying it as a holy day.  Other religions consider the New Year in their observed calendars as holy but not all Christian sects consider New Year’s Day a holy day. Note: Holy Day became Holiday See: Holy Day became Holiday

Psychology

As I wrote above humans seem to benefit emotionally and mentally when milestones are observed: a review and a new start for desired improvement begun a new.  BUT, if celebrations go to debauchery physical illness and emotional distress (regrets) may be the real effects of all the hoopla.

You can lose friends, lose respect and esteem.

A Better Life can be Found Here

There is hope however and you can receive guidance on ways to celebrate and retain your good standing.  Socialize with like-minded friends who will not push you into embarrassing behavior and present a good example to the next generation.  Where can you find this high quality guidance and encouragement?

Live Free and Well as a Christian

Bible Verses:

Ecclesiastes 3:13 ESV

Also that everyone should eat and drink and take pleasure in all his toil—this is God’s gift to man.

Ephesians 5:18 ESV

And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit,

Proverbs 20:1 ESV

Wine is a mocker, strong drink a brawler, and whoever is led astray by it is not wise.

  1. I find it interesting that the words “new year” tacked onto a date on the calender lead people to believe that they will somehow be successful in doing something that they’ve previously failed, i.e. losing weight, working out, being more kind, giving, patient, etc. As Christians we know that the “things” of which we are convicted to change must begin with God. He alone can change our hearts. Through sanctification we are capable of becoming more humble, patient, etc. Some people find hope in the beginning of a “new year.” Our hope is found in Christ, who gives us new mercies every day. The difference is perspective. Do u view life from a worldly perspective or from the perspective of God’s Word? If you want something to celebrate, celebrate that Jesus conquered sin & death, & by faith in Him, we have eternal life! Eph 2:8 Happy New Life in Christ!
