A Happy and Peaceful New Year to Everyone Everywhere

December 31, 2012
Happy New Year!

Happy New Year-clock

Just as I wished you Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays in several languages a week ago, today I wish you a most Happy New Year in twelve other languages.

I especially wish peace for all of these countries and for everywhere else. I think it’s about time this sorry old world got a rest from its woes.
