新年 . 快 . 樂



為什麼新年要慶祝?要倒數?要喝酒狂歡?要跑到街上同人逼?同陌生人抱抱講「新年快樂」?

新年的意義是甚麼?

為什麼不慶祝新一天?新星期?新月份?

午夜十二時的那一秒,又有甚麼特別?


說到尾,還不只是找藉口玩樂?

我寧願十時睡覺,精神面對太陽底下的新一天。

I have been pondering about this as well. My preliminary conclusion is that
i) it is not a bad thing to have special days marked out from usual days. It's like the foreground and background in music. =p

ii) more deeply, year-cycles connects one with the rhythm of the universe, of nature. It was important to ancient civilizations as it was to the Church. It is a good thing to have landmarks as thus, to 'know where you are' in temporality. (is the barline just an excuse for the build up towards a downbeat, for some anxiety and fun?)
