Happy weekend, dear friends, and happy brand new year! 🎉 As we put our old acquaintance, 2022, in the rear view mirror (with perhaps some measure of relief), I'd like to ask about your traditions for celebrating the new year holiday, whenever you celebrate it. Any special foods, games, customs, rituals? What will you be doing, if anything special, to mark the transition? [more inside]
It’s 2019, I want to start my year expressing my gratitude to my family on MetaFilter. Over the years you’ve comforted me in sorrow, laughed with me, answered my questions, shared your dogs and your cats, let me into your own lives, made me smile, brought forth tears, listened to my music and shared your music with me, educated me, and enlightened me. Thank you! I turned 70 years old this year, survived a fall down the stairs that should have killed me had it not been for my wife and son’s quick response, it made me step back and evaluate what I truly value. We’re all here on MetaFilter for a reason. My reason is this community and each of you. I hope this new year brings each of you peace.
Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, I'm wondering about New Year's resolutions -- do you make them? Do you hate them? Did you succeed at any last year? And also, how do you welcome in the new year? [more inside]
Happy Hannukah, Merry Christmas, and for the rest of us I'm sure we'll enjoy Festivus. Share your plans/best present/whatever AND your single best Dec/Jan holiday recipe but YOU MUST PICK ONLY ONE. (It's like Highlander, but for recipes.)
Happy New Year to you all, may it be better than this one in each and every way, and may you all continue to make the awesome posts and comments that make this place what it is!
As one of the first to cross the Magic Line, from the land of Easterstralia where the many-legs grow, let me tell you: the ant-lords are harsh but fair. All praise the myrmiform cabal (there is no cabal) of 2014! Thanks for being here, again, and as always, for another diurnal rotation. Y'all are rocks, and islands.
Happy New Year! I love you people!
Happy New Year! We're already well into it here in New Zealand, and I hope that as the rest of you catch up, yours get as good a start as mine.
