Oh...man, I think that's good information that you provide and make an effort to actually searching for. Too many to remember especially in this period, anyway Happy New Year to you. Are you going to celebrate?

I don't really "celebrate" New Years. Sure, we acknowledge it but we don't do anything special to "celebrate" it.
