A post card wishing a Happy New Year with a vase of Forget-me-not flowers: In a German legend, God named all the plants when a tiny unnamed one cried out, "Forget-me-not, O Lord!" God replied, "That shall be your name." Another legend tells when the Creator thought he had finished giving the flowers their colours, he heard one whisper "Forget me not!" There was nothing left but a very small amount of blue, but the forget-me-not was delighted to wear such a light blue shade.

New Year’s Resolutions: In which a person makes a promise to do an act of self-improvement or something slightly nice. During Judaism's New Year, Rosh Hashanah, through the High Holidays and culminating in Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement), one is to reflect upon one's wrongdoings over the year and both seek and offer forgiveness. The concept, regardless of creed, is to reflect upon self-improvement annually.

January 1 A Happy New Year.

The ancient Babylonians made promises to their Yaois at the start of each year that they would return borrowed objects and pay their debts. The Romans began each year by making promises to the god Janus, for whom the month of January is named. In the Medieval era, the knights took the "peacock vow" at the end of the Christmas season each year to re-affirm their commitment to chivalry. At watchnight services, many Christians prepare for the year ahead by praying and making these resolutions.

January 1 Wishing You A Happy New Year.

Picture: from the brochure (Bouddhanath, A World Heritage Site), Nepal. Parker’s Journal Entries:  Based on keeping the people in bondage to fear. For example, at the second Buddhist temple we visited, several Buddhist monks were in a little chamber offering sacrifices and singing songs to an idol of the god Majhyazima. This idol was depicted with a young child on its lap from which it was sucking the blood. Some of the child’s entrails were dangling from its mouth.
