Welcome to the
latest issue of the TV Acres Newsletter
So, this is 2002.
And how did you celebrate the New Year? For
example, people in Moslem societies celebrate
the new year by wearing new clothes. Southeast
Asians release birds and turtles to assure
themselves good luck in the twelve months
ahead. Jewish people consider the day holy,
and hold a religious ceremony at a meal with
special foods. Hindus of India leave shrines
next to their beds, so they can see beautiful
objects at the start of the new year. Japanese
prepare rice cakes at a social event the week
before the new year (Shogatsu). And, as
for me, I celebrate by watching Dick Clark and
others bring in the New Year with rock and
roll music while visions of Super Bowl players
dance in my head.
our custom, let's wish each other good luck
and promise ourselves to do better in the
following year. At the very least, watch more
TV. It's good for ya!
