Say it loud

I love wishing people "Happy New Year." It's not like "Merry Christmas." You don't have to hesitate, or ask yourself later whether you think they actually celebrate this one. Today is New Year's Day, period. Oh yeah, it's not New Year's in Chinatown, or at the synagogue, but hey, most of the people in those two places still have a sense of humor about it.

I carry the New Year greeting into the month of January quite a ways, using it whenever I greet a friend for the first time in the year. It makes me feel good, right up there with "Good morning." Given my sleep habits, I don't get to say the latter as often as I should.

One other nice thing about celebrating the new year by sending out greeting cards that say "Happy New Year" (none of this mishmash of "Season's Greetings") is that no one takes offense if the card arrives a week after the holiday itself.
