Honestly, I'm not good in words and sayings, but here are some quotes that I can find...erm well, to enhance our new year spirit.. :)
“Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!
This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!
I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!”
by William Arthur Ward (American dedicated scholar, author, editor, pastor and teacher)

Who unto man His Son hath given;
While angels sing with tender mirth,
A glad new year to all the earth."

May bring no tear to any eye
When this New Year in time shall end
Let it be said I've played the friend,
Have lived and loved and labored here,
And made of it a happy year."
