Out with the Old, In with the New – Happy New Year! Happy 2015!

Happy New Year!!

I actually had this post ready to go live at 12 a.m. but I couldn’t get the internet to work to schedule the post on my smartphone.

I would like to wish each and everyone of you an amazing 2015!  I hope the new year brings lots of joy, laughter, good fortune, and happiness.  May the new year be everything you want it to be plus more!  May each and every one of your hopes and desires come true.

I will be off the grid for a few days, so I will leave you with a few photos I took of last year’s fireworks.

How did you ring in the New Year?

    1. I think I am making up for past ones as there wasn’t much excitement on New Year’s Eve in the small town where I grew up. Now, I always just jump at the opportunity to do something fun and exciting..

      Happy New Year! Hope your 2015 is off to an amazing start!

    1. I hardly went out on New Year’s Eve before I moved to Taiwan – not much excitement in a small town. However, there are so many places to go in Taiwan on New Year’s Eve that I find it hard to stay home.

      A night in sounds very relaxing! I bet it was nice to stay home and ring in the New Year! Hope your 2015 is off to a great start!

  1. I went shopping for dried food in anticipation of being hit with a tropical storm on New Year’s day. Thank goodness the latest news is that the storm has dissipated before reaching us. Now I have tonnes of unhealthy food to finish before Chinese New Year.. not good, not good.. LOL!

  2. Happy New Year, Constance! Did you go traveling? 🙂

    On New Year’s Eve I had dinner in a hot pot (yay! although actually not that yay as our friend ordered all the innards available in the menu, haha) and then we came back home and ate 12 grapes at 12 (a Spanish tradition).

    1. Thanks, Marta! Yes, my husband and I went to visit some friends in Kaohsiung for the long weekend. We went to E-Da to ring in the New Year.

      I have heard about that Spanish tradition before – I guess the 12 grapes represent the 12 months of the year? And all this talk about hot pot is making me wish for some!! 🙂

      Happy New Year! I hope you have a great 2015!!

      1. Yes, the 12 grapes represent the months of the year! And if you manage to eat them in time (while the clock strucks 12, on TV there is a special show from Madrid, where there is a famous clock on a tower) you will be lucky in the new year! This year I started laughing while eating the grapes and I couldn’t swallow so I ended UP with my mouth stuffed with grapes and saying FAFFY NEW YEAFFFF!

  3. Happy new year, Constance! Great firework photos from Kaohsiung. Hope your 2015 is off to a great, and will continue so. =)

    1. Yes, they were very impressive. I have been going to E-Da on NYE for the past three years and the place never disappoints. I use to go to Taipei but now I prefer to head south and celebrate with friends who live there.

      Hope your New Year is off to a good start!

  4. We got snowed in which is quite unusual from this part of Italy, so our plans changed fro New Years Eve but still had some nice time. Best wishes to you for an amazing 2015 full of great experiences 🙂

    1. Wow! Snow!! I bet you had a great time playing with the white powdery stuff. I love snow as long as I don’t need to shovel it and as long as it is only a light sprinkle. Yes, apparently I am picky when it comes to snow! 🙂

      Hope your New Year is off to a good start! Look forward to seeing where your travels take the both of you in 2015!!

  5. Happy new year to you. Hope it’s a brilliant one. We were pretty quiet as I was working the next day, but still lovely to spend it with the kids!
