NewYear'ssky

“On New Year’s Eve, at about quarter to twelve o’clock at night, the master of the house and all that are with him go about from room to room opening every door and window, however cold the weather be, for thus, they say, the old year and its burdens can go out and leave everything new for hope and for the youth of the coming time. This also is a superstition, and of the best. Those who observe it trust that it is as old as Europe, with roots stretching back into foreign times.”
Hilaire Belloc, A Remaining Christmas

In this new year, may we be relieved of the burdens of the past year, while taking with us the fruits these burdens have borne. May our homes be renewed in hope, becoming ever more places where the youth of the coming time may blossom, and flourish.
