Today is the new year’s eve, according to the Hebrew calendar. The beginning of a new year is always a good opportunity for an internal check-in. New resolutions. New wishes and dreams. An opportunity to look afresh at life and re-sketch my path in it.

I enjoy pondering both on the Jewish new year and on January 1st. Exhausting any opportune moment to go back to the drawing board of life and making sure I’m not walking on the wrong path too long.

I would like to celebrate the new year with a giveaway for you!!!

Giveaway –

I have a copy of the book: Visual Chronicles by: Linda Woods and Karen Dinino to give away. It is a beautiful book, filled with loads of creativity.

You may click on the link to look inside the book on Amazon.

To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment on this post and write how are you celebrating or going to celebrate the new year and on which date or dates?

I will draw one happy winner on October 14th, which is Sukkot’s eve. So make sure to stay tuned for the winner’s announcement.

    I am celebrating the new year by reflecting back on the joys of being a mother and seeing the rewards as my children launch their independent lives. It’s my first year as an empty nester and as painful as it is, I know I’ve done my job and that my children’s success away from me is a true blessing.

  2. I am celebrating with friends – my close friend I. invited us all over for dinner tonight. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Shana Tova!

    • Avital says:

    I celebrate my new year on March 20th which is the first day of spring and the Spring Equinox. I am Native American, and this is when I was taught to celebrate the beginning of the new year.
    I do kind of celebrate it on Jan 1 by eating black eyed peas and collards with my friends who celebrate it on this date.

    • Avital says:

      Thank you for sharing. It is so interesting to learn about other cultures and religions. By the way, according to the Jewish religion, around the same time, we are celebrating the new year of the trees. It is called Tu Bi’Shvat (which is the 15th of the Hebrew month os Shvat).

  6. Pat Woodruff says:

    I celebrate the new Year on Jan 1st. Normally I am in California so at 4.00pm PST I have a glass of sherry to welcome in the New Year at British time. This year I will be here in England so can celebrate with my family at midnight.

  7. SmilynStef says:

    The new year is January 1 for me. We usually try to just relax and think about our dreams for the year ahead.

  8. Nancy L. says:

    I will celebrate on Jan. 1. We have 2 business that require to be open that day and will be working for most of the day. But at the end we will all be together for the begining of the new year! Thanks for the chance to win!

    I’m from the Hero Arts Flickr group and I hadn’t been to visit your blog. I’m so glad I finally did. Happy New Year indeed.

    I’ll be adding your blog address to my blog. Have a very good rest of the year – I celebrate new year on January 1st, usually sleeping under the covers :))

    The New Year is Jan. 1 for me. I think of New Year’s Eve as the year’s most romantic holiday and enjoy dating my husband on that night. However, his job has prevented us from enjoying the holiday for the last several years. This year, he should be off. Hello champagne and romance!

    • Avital says:

      My fingers are crossed and I wish you and your hubby a romantic new year eve this year ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Roberta Duncan says:

    I suppose now is a good time to do a check on my life and begin my long awaited wants and dreams. I’m all about being creative and I have jotted a lot of ideas in my head and in my note book but never brought it to life. This month, I will begin my walk and bring my ideas to life and see where it takes me.

  13. marcia says:
