1 / 1 / 11 The New Year Begins

 “Happy New Year”

These are likely the first words you heard this year, if you were awake, that is.

They were the first words I heard.

And it is the year of the ‘Ones”

1 / 1 / 11

Around the world people ‘ring in the year’ in many ways.

In New York there is the famous ball drop in Times Square.

In Atlanta they drop a humongous 800  pound Peach (Today’s photo.)

Many places have elaborate fireworks.

And, as we mentioned yesterday, many folks sleep through the occasion while others are working, partying, praying, or worshipping.

For those of you who did not see the big festivities and even if you did, if you’d like to see how the arrival of  1/ 1 / 11 occurred in various places, HERE’S THE LINK
