#9: Happy!

When I was abroad I finally was able to celebrate the New Year the way I've always imagined. In Boston (USA), there were no petards, no drunken people... There were 'buttons' instead of the tickets to every show you wanted to see. Gospel music, learning to dance hip-hop and folk dances, watching and learning sign language, ice sculptures, big parade and fireworks above the river Charles... I felt safe, I felt happy, I felt connection to all those happy people on the streets... 

Copenhagen (Denmark) was not 'my type', but I loved a creative celebration among group of people. We were painting together and I enjoyed that very, very much. I still see the picture in my head and the happy feelings I had there....

Because of some bad experiences in my childhood (maybe I'll write about them some time), I don't like the loud, noisy and filled with alcohol parties and celebrations. It's too bad, because I would love to celebrate on the streets, esp. if the happiness and positive spirit come from the heart, not from some 'substances'... Oh, well, maybe some day...

Wishing you a wonderful celebration and all the best in the year 2012!

I have a question for you today, too: 

Question #9: How, where or when did you celebrate the New Year the way you want it?

Thank you for your support, time and inspiration that you've left over the year on this blog. It's great to know we are not alone! Thank you for everything!
