It it is the new year 2018.
I’m hearing a lot of ‘Happy New Year!’
Who started this phrase?
Shouldn’t we say ‘Happy Last Year’ or ‘Well Played Last Year’, because we accomplished last year, we overcame things last year, or at least we lived through last year.
This new year is an unknown. 2018 is unknown ground.
Some will die, some will prosper, some will lose some things and for this we say, “Happy New Year!”
Not even a wish more like a demand.
Well, Happy New Year.
