>>19701>I never understood the appeal to celebrating the beginning of a new year, it's the most depressing "holiday" in existence.
It's the symbol representing the passing of time, the "ritual", what drives to celebrate these kind of things as holidays. It's like birthdays; they're there only to remind you that time passes and you can't do anything to stop it.
While I understand it, I don't see why everybody frets their shit so much about it. I mean, it's no different than a weekend. Monday always comes right after it.
