December 31 is the last day of a year, marked as the New Year Eve in the Gregorian calendar, also known as Old Year’s Day or Saint Sylvester’s Day in many countries. In India it is often celebrated in the evening as a social gathering, eating, drinking and merrymaking, watching fireworks and some others attending watch night prayer service in churches, still others performing Puja’s for a prosperous year ahead. It is a major celebration all across the globe including the metropolitan cities of India till the dawn of the next day keeping awake to launch the New Year.
It would be ideal to reckon ‘New Year Eve’ as a time for some challenging thoughts. New Year resolutions are a musty fashion, yet a New Year Gift for your friends and colleagues made in a demanding manner would be always more welcoming.
A little recollection on our attitudes, behavior and actions all through the past year will be an eye-opener to us to make life smoother for others. A little effort brings happiness to all around us but it requires a lot of determination, patience and tolerance.
Let the ‘Best Gift’ for the New Year be an effort to bring happiness to others, be it your family, friends, customers, colleagues or workforce, accepting very well ‘Happiness’ is not a product of the market. It will flow abundantly only if we are ready to give it generously.
The UAE Exchange family wishes one and all a Happy and Prosperous New Year, 2017.
