While many countries on the other side of the globe are prepared for a white, snowy Christmas, many are waiting to say Goodbye to 2012 – The Year Of Technology. Yes, you are right! I am talking about New Year’s Eve. Another year waiting to pass by. Many hearts are beating faster and faster to wave a hand at 2013 – the year ahead. The loud noises and sounds of merrymaking are supposed to drive away bad spirits. Happiness and Prosperity are waiting to rain upon the true and honest man. It’s the time to renovate and rethink and build a happier land – the land where dreams come true.
Everyone was celebrating – some were having fun at home while the others were dancing and singing till midnight, in the clubs and discos. Well, if it’s about me I was having a campout in a nature resort with my school buddies. It was a stimulating and thrilling – a lifetime experience. We all played sports like Basketball and Cricket and Traditional Indian games like Kabaddi, Kanche and Kho – Kho. We also had a daring escapade doing Rappelling, Rock – climbing and Zipping.
In the evening, we all had a nice time chatting and playing Sweep, a card game. We also had a hearty dinner. Then we danced with joy and sang with delight. The countdown soon began. 10…9…8…7…6…5…4…3…2…1… Happy New Year! We cut a raspberry flavoured cake and ate it with relish.
Now, as the New Year is over. It’s time to get back to routine and study and follow your new year resolution.
So, this is how I spent New Year. How did you do?
