New Years Eve 2015: A Global Revelry post image

 

A few days ago we bid farewell to 2014 and embraced 2015 with a global celebration. Aside from the commencement of another year the New Year festivities mark the time to contemplate on our past mistakes and to reflect on how to improve ourselves further. The New Year symbolizes the renewal of our chance to make things right- it restores our inner drive to accomplish our goals. It is also a momentous time to give and receive the gift of forgiveness and to be grateful for the blessings learning experiences and virtues that we've gained in the previous year which truly made us better and stronger! Indeed it is a fusion of celebration where thankfulness and hopefulness intertwine therefore one cannot think of a New Year celebration without an abundant feast and an extraordinary festivity.
