A little late

Happy New Gregorian Solar Year ... or just plain Happy New Year, for short.

Hey, did you know that January 1st has only been celebrated as the beginning of the New Year in America since 1752? I didn't. Some call it the "secular" New Year. Others say it represents the reincarnation of an ancient Roman holiday. Still others, well, don't.

Hmmm. Nevertheless, sometimes, any excuse for a party will do.
