The unavoidable New Year's Things.
« on: December 31, 2013, 08:31:01 AM »
Happy New Year to you all! May it be happy, healthy and prosperous.

Are you too looking forward to the endless programmes, articles, advice and offers relating to a healthy life style, and how to get rid off the extra pounds you gained over the Christmas period?

I have already seen the first low calorie recipes and special offers in 'exercise machines.'

If you are really interested in one of those; hang on a bit, as there will be a glut of them in charity shops and on eBay in February.

Anything else that always strikes you as typical of the New Year?

Along with the healthy lifestyle routine, the endless ads for gym memberships (or workout studio, or pilates class, etc.), and also the diet plans (all of which I've heard are very expensive)!

And of course the ubiquitous new year resolutions.  You know, I don't think I've ever made a new year resolution, lol!

One thing I do find interesting, is how many people have a traditional new year's meal.  A friend of mine used to always cook beans and cornbread, and said it was for good luck through the year.  I think the hispanic/latino cultures have a special meal too, although I've forgotten what it is.

This year, I think a lot of superstitiious people will be glad to say goodbye to 2013.

But for me, it will be the same as every year --  I just pray for world peace!
