How do you feel about the new year? Is it a fresh start for you each year? Is this year 2010 special for you? Or do you make it a time to complete the old year? Myself, I just set up things for the new year, bookkeeping type of stuff. I close all the Christmas down. The tree, the cards etc. I try to cheer up the house to get us through the winter, it gets a little dreary around here until late March. This is how I start each year.

On the practical side, I get all of my things for taxes around at the end of each year, and like you, put away holiday decorations, but leave something about to create a warmer atmosphere for the cold winters: red throws and pillows, candles, things like that. On a more philosophical note, for me, it is a time of reflection on the year just past, and what I can learn from it, as well as time for setting a goal for the new year.

I think Red, Orange and Yellow are very cheerful and I do know that colors affect the moods. Happy New Year

I always try to see the new year as a new beginning for me and my family.Sometimes the years seem to fly by so quick and we have to make the most of all of it.

The feeling of new year is indeed the special one. It is like a new start to the life. This sort of perception of the new year makes it the special day.

New year is one of the most special events for me. I consider this day special simply because it's a beginning of a new year which means a beginning of a new life too. We can have some changes in another year. I don't exactly know how am I going to explain how I always feel every time I welcome a new year. This day makes me happy and joyful.

I am hoping to have a fresh start this coming 2010. I am letting go of all the negative traits I have. Like being lazy..haha.. I'll try to focus more on getting things done and stop procrastinating. =)

The past few year New Year's day has been kind of a milestone marker. It signals a sigh of relief as I realize that I have gotten through the end of the holiday season. I generally see as the end of another hard year. I do look at the new year as a new beginning, and always hope that the New Year will be a little easier, a little kinder, and less challenging. It also signals that winter break is almost over and time to go back to working in a classroom of students. I have to say this winter break I've missed working. I really have I will enjoy going back and seeing those smiling face. Perhaps, I'm feeling especially this way because I know I will only have two week's left working with these students. Another part of me like every winter break feels like there is still a million things I need to get done and I've accompolished none of them. I've taken the winter break for some down time and trying to make a plan for earning extra money. So, I guess you could say I got one thing crossed off the list and a million remains. In 2010, I am looking forward to student teaching. Graduation is nearing in May. While the new year holds so much promise it also holds so much uncertainity. I am going to try to embrace the new year as a new experience and hope for the best is to come in 2010!

I am starting this year with some good intentions financially, and we will just see if we get there. I think the new year is a great time to go through records and stuff getting a fresh start. Winter has already been too long this year.

We still are very dry, we need much more snow and rain so I am willing to wait for Spring. But of course the weather will do what it does with no advice from me. Happy New Year

I'm excited about the new year. I do feel like it's, in a way, a fresh start for me. I haven't made an official new year's resolution yet, but I do have some ideas. I don't know if I would consider 2010 special, but it will be when I turn my last year of being a teenager, so I guess that's pretty huge. Some time soon, I will also have to help my family take down the Christmas tree and clean up, which is a little depressing because Christmas is my favorite holiday. But for the most part, I am excited for the new year =]

I like to make a list of things I want to accomplish. Some of them are large, some are small, but I list them all. Some things are leftovers from 2009, but that's ok. I will do them first this year. I try to get the tree down by January 1 and get the house back in order after the holidays. It helps to start with a clean and orderly home. It doesn't get dreary around here, because I will have out the seed catalogs and be planning a garden!

I have mixed feelings about the new year! I usually make all of these far-fetched resolutions, and always tend to believe that January 1st of the new year is always going to be something of a "new start", but in reality.. I know that it's really just a continuation of what was going on the year before. *shrugs*. lol. I can't really say for sure if 2010 will be special for me..With any luck it will be, though!
