How to Celebrate and What to Expect for New Year?

It's the final week of 2011 which means we are just days away from the most-awaited New Year 2012. Last evening, some of my close buddies made a surprise visit to my house. We were enjoying a few TV programs on my newly-availed Dish TV service. Meanwhile, we were having a casual chat as to what to expect for this New Year. Each of us had different views and believe me, guys, the chat went on and on until it was midnight. But I have to admit it was an interesting conversation. Let me share some of the highlighting topics that we discussed last night.

No doubt, New Year is the most widely celebrated festival in the world. However, there have been mixed outlooks on the coming year from people all over the world; some feel this year might mark the end of the world while some feel there will be a good turn of fortunes and view this as a great year to come. Not surprisingly, each country has its own customs and traditions in celebrating the grand occasion.

Call it predictions or superstitions, there have been some serious precursors heading into the much-awaited year. According to the Mayan calendar (also known as the Big Calendar), the world will come to an end on 21st December 2012. Indians believe that the year 2012 could mark the arrival of an avatar (a God in the form of human being) to reorganize this world. According to the Ancient Egyptians, an unknown planet will hit the Earth in 2012 and this could cause huge catastrophes. Then there is a book titled "Prediction of Orion's" which claims that the electromagnetic field around the Earth will undergo radical changes which means all the electronic devices would stop working and this could spell disaster. A quote from the book "The Bible Code" states that a big asteroid will hit the Earth in 2012. Apart from the ones mentioned here, there are a lot more views flowing in from people all over the world.

Let me tell you my honest opinion. There is no need to get affrighted listening to these predictions. I'll give you a simple example. According to the Latin, octo stands for the number eight while novem stands for 9, isn't it? But if we are to go by what is there in our calendars, October denotes the 10th month and November denotes the 11th month while they should be denoting the 8th and 9th month respectively. Moreover, I'm pretty sure that nobody can exactly tell when the earth was formed; nobody can exactly say when life came into existence. Although people site the big bang theory as a reason for the creation of the earth, there isn't any conclusive evidence that the big bang expansion led to the creation of the earth. In fact, the theory itself is quite confusing to understand.

I'm not asking people to disbelieve these theories. I would neither say that these are myths nor would I say that these changes are going to take place. All I want to say is stop thinking about what is going to happen in the future and start thinking about the present as no one knows what's going to happen in the future. The best thing to do is to welcome this New Year just with a celebration like never-before, just like how we celebrate every New Year. Lets' think that this is going to be the best new year of all time. Some of you might take time to rewind the good and bad happenings of 2011. Be happy about the good things and take the not-so-good-things as a learning experience. One needs to have a positive outlook on approaching life.

Don't let go the festive mood. Go to Church with family, have party with friends, decorate your house like never-before, have good food, wear new clothes, take New Year resolutions and enjoy the grand occasion with utmost happiness. Take time before the New Year to think of what you can do to make this New Year special and memorable. You may take up resolutions like: try to mend broken relationships, be the best friend to your children and wife, and treat everyone with love. I wish all of you a great year ahead.
