We have a saying "Collecting firewood three years, spend an hour" to talk about spending. We worked hard a long year. To end it, we buy, hold parties, travel, etc. ..

Is accompanied by gifts, money and all sorts of happy years the cost of other components. Often the savings in one year will be expended. At this time, no one seems to regret the money to spend. Over the last year, began a cycle worked hard last year to earn money to spend ...

You're right. I'm too. I'm very happy about new year in my country. However, I only want to say about money issue in this. Maybe because my income is too little so I must burn all my money on this occasion?

Hi Tkonlinevn and Happy New year. This sounds a little sad but this is why we earn money - to be able to spend them. Some people can earn a lot of money and make business, but I don't have this skill. With the money I get I can't even make savings so I don't make a big spending at the end of the year.

So, they're more lucky than you because they have money to spend at the end of the year? :) As me, we're the same unlucky. One doesn't have enough money; one lose all money !

Hi tkonlinevn. Your correct, the money which we earned for months and months were spend in few minutes or few hours. But for that few minutes or few hours only we are motivated to earn that money. I think enjoying the life should be based on daily basis and money will not decide our enjoyment. Just speaking happily with all our friends and relatives makes us keep going. Smile alot it cost nothing. But money also important as it gives the compensation for your hard work. Saving will help us in some crtical situation, so keep saving too.

The fact is not simple as we think. We can't do anything if we don't have money. We must spend them for much our needs.

Maybe that is one of the few chances of happiness for some people who have been working hard for the whole year.Currently so many wage-earners are facing with so much stress and even they have money,they do not have time in other time of the year. So the end of the year is some how a paradise for them to give utterance to their restrant. People can not always spare without spend so long as it is meaningful.

New year can be a burden for many people. Some of them can't turn back their hometown in this occasion because the fees are too big. They don't have enough money for them.
