The holiday of New Year's is one that with few exceptions is celebrated in every country in the world. The holiday has come to represent shedding the old, embracing the new and a time to hope for peace and prosperity. In Scotland, they have torchlight parades, in Japan they release lighted balloons into the air and almost everywhere there are spectacular fireworks.
This year was no exception.
To the readers of this site, my family and friends. Have a wonderful, love filled and peaceful 2014.
