Happy happy happy new year folks!!! As I type this, I can hear loud party noises and fire crackers all around. I dislike parties. I prefer being in a quiet atmosphere with my loved ones, doing something meaningful together. We always light the lamp at midnight. It's a family tradition. You can see the lamp in the first picture, and my altar, illuminated by the brightness of the lamp in the second. We thank the universe for ALL the blessings bestowed upon us. And we welcome the new year with prayers and gratitude. With this I come to the end of my blog marathon. 31 days, and I have given you all 31 posts! Leave me comments. I love to hear from you. Happy New Year once again. May all your dreams come true.
