Yes, there is such a thing as Old New Year and it’s celebrated tonight.
Winter holidays are almost over unlike Usyaka’s hunt.
Good-bye, winter holidays!
Do I say happy new year, or happy old new year? In either case, I had a reminder set up to tell me it was today so I didn’t miss it! It sure doesn’t look like winter there, I am so jealous of your sunshine. Does it ever rain there?
Thank you so much! It’s so cool you even had your reminder set up 🙂
I think one says Happy New Year to that. It is the beginning of a new year, it’s just starts later with that calendar.
According to Wikipedia we have 270 sunny days a year here, but it feels like more, really. And yes, it sure does rain and those are not the rains when the drops just fall down, it’s more like the whole sea swims into the town and starts flying around the streets, smashing everything, creating rivers and waterfalls. By the morning of the next day there’s usually no reminder at all it happened.
We had a hurricane recently. Our block was shaking like a train and it lulled me so I slept through the most of it. It was only the next day when a local woman told me she’d never seen anything like that here in her 50 years time and she sat at home crying because she was so scared. Trees, bus stops, bill boards have fallen. So yes, we do have not sunny weather here but it’s never boring :))
I absoloutely LOVE your description of a deluge there! Florida was like that, with thunder and lightning. Here…it rains a little, constantly. That gets boring. I was never afraid of a good storm either, they are exciting! Unless you sleep through them 🙂
I once spent a summer in Scotland and it was like that – constantly raining with tiny threads of water.
Florida sounds like fun 🙂 I love when the nature goes that crazy and you sit and watch and feel like you knew nothing about winds or rains before.
Unfortunately Florida is full of Americans! Hahahaha! Yes, Scotland and Ireland are a lot alike. I still manage to get a tan, though. You’ve reminded me of another story, of my best thunderstorm ever! Will write that out soon. Oh! Stop by my place in a few minutes: my Usyaka-inspired drawing is done and I’m about to post it up!
Exciting! I’ll be there! 😀
I love your cat:)
oh thank you so much 🙂
We too celebrated Old New Year last night! Happy New Year!!!
I thought you would! Happy New Year to all of you!!!
Here is hot and summer now!! We´re in summer holidays in Brazil.
I’m so happy for you guys! It must be really cool 🙂
Bom fim de semana! (although, that’s already Saturday)
