The new year is here as promised
One year has passed in the blink of an eye, and another year has slipped away quietly. The new year has arrived as promised, as if the colorful lanterns were hung for last year's Christmas Eve a few days ago.
Walking on the street, I met unfamiliar smiles, and the smiles conveyed each other's joy. Although they don't know each other, they seem to feel the joy in each other's hearts today.
Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in the West are like New Year's Eve and New Year's Day in China. When I was a child, I looked forward to the visit of Santa Claus every Christmas Eve. A huge sock is placed on the bedside, hoping that tomorrow the sock will contain a gift. Maybe parents secretly put in some little surprises to make the children feel as if Santa Claus is coming.
In the joy of Christmas Eve and Christmas, let us look forward to the warm arrival of the New Year.
