I found this end of the year blogging project referenced on my sister's friend's blog, which I've enjoyed reading for the last couple of years.

I love the holidays. I love the food, the family, and the presents. If I had to rank the "winter" holidays, it would go like this:
  1. New Year's Day: I love the idea of a new beginning. The biggest aspect of my spirituality is the comfort of renewal. What's done is done. I can remain fixated on the past or I can look forward to the future, and I choose to do the latter.
  2. Christmas: This has everything--family, food, and loot.
  3. Thanksgiving: 2 out of 3 ain't bad.
  4. New Year's Eve: Mostly because it leads to New Year's Day. Also, exciting things happen at midnight.
  5. (A Very Distant Last Place) Valentine's Day. I like the idea, but it's always a letdown. The chocolate is good, so it's not a total loss.
So, part of the greatness of my favorite holiday is being able to take stock of the year and ponder resolutions for the next. So, here goes nothing.

I wish exciting things happened to me at midnight on New Year's... :) Usually, not so much. Maybe this year... :)
