After the festivities

Alcohol always plays a role in most festivities, at least in and around my family. This is especially true during the New Year celebrations, either to forget the past year or welcome the new year inebriated. Either way or whatever the reason; yours and mine, it works.

Staying up late, eating a copious amount of food, talking to friends and loved ones and drink one's poison - wine, spirits or beer; makes the conversation less formal, less tense and frank. Now there is a great way to start the new year: frank without being hurtful and true to oneself. There is nothing like starting the new year free and unburdened by the baggages of last year and a fresh new start to the new year.

Here's to 2009... let's drink to that!
