Happy New Year - Bonne Année - Prosit Neujahr - Feliz Ano Nuevo!

There's a word search with renderings of the greeting into other languages at:

I wonder when fireworks first became part of New Year celebrations here in the UK? One more example of globalisation, no doubt. We used to be content with a glass of sherry, some bits of shortbread, a piece of coal for first-footing and Jimmy Shand and his Band playing in the background...

Happy new year to all.

As a child living in Gt Yarmouth during the 1960's the whole family would pile outside at Midnight, to listen to the ships horns being sounded, it seemed to my young eyes taht the whole neighbourhood was out, wishing each other happy new year, and singing auld lang syne (doubt thats spelt right) Now all we have is the moronic BOOM, BOOM, BOOM Of fireworks. If thats progress you can keep it. Signed Victor Meldrew..
