Aye, most people who make resolutions give up on them. I think you don't need a new year to make a change in your life. I guess a new year is a good time to have a clean slate and start over.

I agree. It's not relevant at all.

I think it's the significance of the new year that makes people excited. But I don't think you can just change your life suddenly just because it's a new year, you should be continually trying to improve yourself (if that's what you want)

I think the new year is very relevant, much more relevant than a birthday in my opinion. I love the fact that it is a chance to start afresh, no matter how good or bad the previous year has been. It's only the 4th January and already I've made some changes in my life that will have a big impact. I know some will roll their eyes at that but it's true for me.

New Year's Eve and the midnight countdown, not so relevant, just a decent night out. The day before New Year's Eve I met with friends and we each took it turns to share our reflections on 2014, it was a very meaningful exercise, much more meaningful than the following evenings activity a.

I definitely agree. If people want to change their lives, I don't see why they have to wait until a new year...If they desperately want to change something about themselves or something in their life, they should take action immediately.

I just think that the idea of a new year is so arbitrary that there is no real significance in such a date. It is like any other day, there's nothing new nor exciting about a new year.

I guess that the only thing that is good about the new year is that it creates this atmosphere where everyone is happy and willing to try new things. I think that's because everyone is under this illusion that a new year means a new start.

Why does everyone wait for a new year in order to reform themselves?
