I'm sure you all enjoy Anderson's New Year's Eve special tonight. Just before it turned 2009, they played Imagine, and I really love that. (As far as I remember, they played it last year, too. Maybe every year they play it?) Terrorism is associated with poverty and as more and more people are losing jobs and getting hungry and we are seeing terrorism even in developed countries too. I cannot help hoping for a better year.
In Japan, we send New Year's card to many friends, coworkers, or just to anyone they know. We post them around December 25 and post office keep them until January 1st. Then we get all the New Year's card on the morning of the 1st. Here's one of the card that I made for New Year's card.
Again, I wish all of you a very happy new year!
