Once again New Year has arrived And Auld Lang Syne is revived There is no way to know What next year will bestow Of such knowledge we are deprived At midnight a new year descends As the present one finally ends I have one thing to write As we approach midnight Happy New Year to my Mylot friends

Here in frozen Canada, we still have 6 hours to wait. But I will be sleeping way before this. Have a happy one!

My main reason for posting a Happy New Year discussion was t create an animation for the occasion. It occurred to me last night that a simple Happy New Year to all could get deleted, so I quickly threw together a Limerick.

I created the animation and originally planned to use I with a simple Happy New Year post. At last minute I decided to submit a Limerick in order to be different.

@Asylum Well I love it, maybe because 2017 was not a year year for me so I see it disappearing like it is being flushed down the toilet. lol

I am pleased to hear that you liked them. The laborious part was formulating the ball layout, after which it was fairly basic.
