How do you celebrate the new year?

Which type are you?

The kind who begins the New Year by straightening bureau drawers, or the kind who begins the New Year by settling in a comfy chair and reading a new Christmas book?

Each sees folly in the other:

The first can't imagine putting off a task that helps start a new year, tidy and neat.

The second can't imagine jumping right to work instead of, first, easing in the New Year with pleasure.

Regardless, 2014 is upon us and who knows what tricks Mother Nature has up her sleeve for January and February?

One thing we know for sure is that the winter solstice is behind us and each day is longer than the one before.

Most of us work by a calendar. So from the colorful array you probably have at hand, choose one of them, go through and mark birthdays, holidays, appointments, check-ups and having the dog washed!

As the year moves on and various other dates are marked, a calendar becomes almost a diary of family activities.

Does yours this year include real milestones - a birth, a wedding, a graduation, perhaps?

Such red letter days add to excitement as one looks forward to those special times.

Who knows what newspaper headlines - yes, newspapers, please before TV announcements - will tell us of activities in Washington, D.C.?

Obviously much of a new year is anybody's guess, but, "if Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?

You can bet on daffodils, for sure.
