Did you know that the traditional "Auld Lang Syne" song you hear every year was actually a Scottish song meaning  Times gone by? But does anyone really know the words?  If you know a Scottsman ask them to sing it with all the traditional Scottish words.

It was brought to popularity in 1929 by Canadian band leader Guy Lombardo and quickly became a US tradition.

If you live in the American South you are probably familiar with the tradition of eating Black eyed peas and Ham Hocks.

Traditions elsewhere in the world include:

Japan: Cleaning house and hosting "forget the year parties" for the year about to end. Children receive small gifts of money.

Netherlands: The Dutch make bonfires and light fireworks

Greece: You eat St. Basils' Cake and look for the lucky coin that was baked inside (hope you don't chip a tooth!)

Spain: At midnight you eat 12 grapes to bring you 12 months of good luck in the new year.

Romania: People wear brightly colored costumes or Bear costumes and perform dances to ward off evil spirits and bad luck.

Whatever your traditions... whatever your resolutions.... we just hope that you have the BEST 2014 !

Michael and Marcia

[caption id="attachment_3128" align="aligncenter" width="400"]Merry Christmas and Happy New Year To All Merry Christmas and Happy New Year To All[/caption]

Although a snow scene hardly depicts Christmas in Palm Springs I believe that Christmas is about the memories you hold most dear. And the snowy, cold Christmases of my youth are my strongest memories. Although I have spent Christmas in many places with all sorts of weather I will never forget the childhood wish for a white Christmas, and the times that wish came true.

Wherever you may find yourself this year, may your Christmas be everything you want it to be and fill your heart with all the love it can hold.
