While I was searching for a suitable background for my New Years Eve theme I came across another background image that really signified the holiday. I've therefore created a second New Years theme with this background as well. This version features a pair of champagne glasses in a toast with the words Happy New Year at the top of the timeline. Where the first theme is leading up to the clock striking midnight this one captures that magical moment just after the new year arrives.

New Years is an interesting holiday. It comes almost immediately after Christmas so you barely have time to catch your breath before shifting from one celebration to the next. The other thing that is really weird is that we actually commemorate the end of one calendar and the beginning of another. I guess it could be worse, we could celebrate running out of toilet paper.
One of the best contemporary Christmas movies has to be A Christmas Story. There's just something about following poor Ralphie as he tries to convince his parents, teacher, and Santa Claus that a Red Ryder air rifle would be the perfect gift. When this movie makes it's annual appearance on television it signifies the beginning of the Christmas season.
