The ghost of New Year Past

Many years ago there was a group of friends

They would meet from time to time throughout the year

But once a year they would party like no other.....

Long finery to beat that of Cinderella

Champagne flutes overflowing

Music to delight the ear and get the feet tapping

Tables overflowing with food

Chatter, long into the night

Late to bed

Very late to rise

And then....

Everyone got married, and late nights were no longer a feasible option!  How much better to share New Year with the family.  Cosy and at home, looking back on last year and ahead to next

Happy New Year everyone
