Make a Toast for the New Year!

Saturday, December 31, 2011

In just a few hours, the big crystal ball in New York City’s Times Square will begin to descend, counting the last 60 seconds of 2011. I love that tradition and, if you’re still awake tonight, you can watch in real time online. (Don’t forget to wait for Frank Sinatra’s singing of “New York, New York” afterward).

It’s the time to celebrate! New Year’s Eve is the most popular night for popping open a bottle of champagne and making a toast for the new year. Besides the traditional “Cheers!” or “Cin Cin!”, I’d like to share some special toasts with you:

  • As we start the New Year, 
let's get down on our knees 
to thank God we're on our feet. 
  • Here's to the bright New Year 
and a fond farewell to the old; 
Here's to the things that are yet to come 
and to the memories that we hold.
  • In the New Year, 
may your right hand always be stretched out in friendship, 
but never in want. 
Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each New Year find you a better man (or woman). -Benjamin Franklin
  • Happy New Year 2012!
