There’s not even a hint of Yuletide ceremony in this.
But it strikes a chord.
Illegitimum non carborundum (as they said in ancient Rome)! Keep your chin up – life can be a crappy deal at times, but don’t let it become a crappy deal all the time.
As one year closes and a new one rises up on the horizon, that’s a good message to keep in mind.
Whatever you’ve got planned, I hope it all goes well. May the god of your personal preference be with you.
