Happy New Year from MyFDL! 

It’s hard to find a New Years’ themed song that isn’t Auld Lang Syne. Here’s a song by Abba from 1979 which is not exactly one of their great classics. With lyrics like …

Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have our hopes, our will to try
If we don’t we might as well lay down and die
You and I

… I think it’s easy to see why this hasn’t entered the canon of holiday songs.

2012 was an eventful year for me, but overall I look back at as a good year where I grew as a person, got to interact with wonderful people, and have once in a lifetime experiences like September 17 in New York City. I will spend tonight with friends and hope you are with people you love, too.
