Best Holiday of All Is...

Christmas? No! 4th of July? No! Halloween? Of course not!

By far the best holiday is New Year's Day. This is day that celebrates a clean slate for everyone. People can wash their hands of the mistakes and regrets of the prior 365 days. In the new year they can lose that weight, meet that special someone, take that long awaited excursion.

There is no basis on religion, race, or nationality. It is based exclusively on mathematics and truth. We are free to say "Happy New Year" to anyone without worrying that you are offending them. Any reasonable person will respond in kind "May you have A marvelous New Year as well". Wouldn't it be great if all other holidays shared this element of reason?
