Minasan, akemashite omeditou gozaimasu! -happy new year everyone

Just spent the last 10 minutes looking for a 'happy new year' thread... no joy. Surely I can't be the first person to want to wish my lovely fellow YOTians a happy new year?? Maybe I'm the first person to think the people here are lovely??? Maybe...

Anyway, all the best for 2009 everyone (that golden release date is crawling ever closer :D).

Hey... In Japan, its the year of the ox/cow btw. Also, you might want to pay attention to the first dream you have, the Japanese believe it fortells how the year ahead will be. I really hope I dream about returning to Japan!!!

This gets me thinking... we're all from different places around this fine planet's surface so I bet we all have different new year customs. So I was wondering, how do you celebrate???

Bye for now. Love you all...
