New Years Eve Is Celebrated In London With A Huge Firework Display

Like so many of you I have celebrated the Christmas holidays with joy and togetherness. 

It also showed me the truth that we all want to give both gifts and smiles. Sharing is essential to the human spirit. 

I could not enter the NEW YEAR of 2016 without wishing all of you around the world a real HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Thank you for being there, for sharing.

So please, join me in the song below and why not in a Merry Dance too.

Auld Lang Syne is Scottish and mean “Times gone by”

    1. A very Happy New Year to you Mary Ann and may it be one filled with joy, peace and fun as well as one with wonderful creative energy and success in all your writing projects. Music is a balm to the soul I agree, reaching it to the core and I enjoy listening to wide variety of music.

  1. Happy, Happy New Year, Annika! I totally agree with what you’ve written here. In fact, one of my New Year’s resolutions is to give more gifts and smiles because sharing really is essential to the human spirit–I love how you put that.

    1. Thank you Eve and I wish you a very Happy New Year. May all your wishes come true and your resolutions hold fast! I think it would be wonderful if we all found the joy of gifts and smiles and that sharing is central to our very being – somehow that makes sense of life itself.

  2. Happy New Year to you Annika! Like one of your previous commenters, I usually end up singing “Dum dum da dum da dum da dum” after the first bit of Auld Lang Syne, so it’s interesting to see the full words for once. 😀

    1. A very Happy New Year to you too! I must admit despite my best effort last night I still resorted to the normal mumbling after the first line. I’m happy to know what I should be singing – just need the words in front of me!

    Happy New Year to you too Annika, and I look forward to reading more of your blogs next year. Oh yes – and thanks for the words to Auld Lang Syne. No more mumbling incoherently after the first two lines for me in future


    1. Wishing you a special magical New Year Mike. The New Year is one of new beginnings I still feel and so with my blog – I myself am interested to know which way it will take, what I will post…a fun and fascinating adventure. So, did you remember the words last night? I didn’t!!

    1. Likewise Jacqui. I’ve enjoyed meeting you during my first full year of blogging and look forward to sharing ideas etc. next year. I wish you a New Year filled with peace, joy and laughter.

  4. This one always opens the floodgates for me, Annika. Not a good analogy in the current climate but it always brings a lump to my throat. A peace and joy filled New Year to you 🙂

    1. Oh Jo, you have me giggling now, opening floodgates is a sore phrase here in the UK at the moment isn’t it?! I too always tear up at this song and as midnight strikes I’ll be cauldron of emotions, happy, sad for those special people no longer with us, excitement at the prospect a brand new year brings. I wish you a a very Happy New Year filled with joy and fun and many more adventures for us to read about and enjoy. 😀

    Wishing you a very Happy New Year Annika with love and joy and strength to follow your dreams. I will be happy to join in the song and a Merry Dance.:)

    1. Thank you Mirja for those beautiful wishes. Sometimes those dreams can become lost in the midst of life, but then as the clouds of confusion clear through love, strength and joy they shine bright again. I will endeavour to follow them to fruition. I wish you a peaceful New Year filled with joy and laughter and many deep and meaningful moments! 😀❤️

    1. Happy New Year to you Mary and I’m so glad you enjoyed the post.😀 I’ve often wondered what the words meant and what the full text was as well! It’s a beautiful soulful song that always has me in tears.

    1. Jill, many thanks and I likewise look forward to your new posts in the New Year. I do always get excited at this time of year, new beginnings and all that. Wishing you and yours a very happy New Year.

    1. Russ, thank you so much for your warm wishes, this has me smiling with joy! Bless you. I wish you and yours a very Happy New Year filled with joy and laughter and creative moments galore. Have a wonderful evening of celebrations!😀
