"I don't get something. What is the logic behind celebrating a "New Year"? I think this is one of those things where people celebrate it because "everyone else is doing it". But if you think about it, there's no logic behind it at all. I mean, an additional digit on a calendar year is not any sort of "event" that is happy or unhappy. It is not a positive or negative event. And it is not any sort of accomplishment to be proud of either. So why celebrate it?

It's understandable to celebrate some happy event, accomplishment, or new deal. Those are merits to celebrate. But just because a number moves in a calendar? If you think about it, there's no logic or reason behind it. It's an empty excuse to celebrate and party. Society ought to think of better reasons to celebrate things. Obviously, New Year is way overrated and devoid of any substance. What is so happy about a New Year? One has no idea what a "New Year" will even bring. So how is it a "positive event"? It isn't. It makes no sense.

People are not rational or driven by logic. They are programmed and conformist. This is a classic case of "people doing something only because everyone else is doing it.'" - Scepcop

Hey there ProfPartyPooper. I'm not sure but nobility never needed a reason to celebrate but I'd bet a buck three sixty that the peons of the land appreciated the day off. More to the point.... I can understand celebrating the equinoxes and the occasional solstices and all but who picked Jan. 1 as the start of a new year? Who decided how Chinese New Year gets started and what's up with those animal years?

Ya' know Ninja, I was looking at that post that appeared to be from me and I'm like "what the hell is that? That's not in my line of thinking at all?" And then I noticed what I did--Back in another thread, Scepcop actually wrote that post saying he didn't understand why people celebrate New Years (note his name at the end of the post) and then in another thread he's writing "Happy Chinese New Year which totally contradicts what he said in another post. So, I was just pointing out his inconsistencies. So sorry for the confusion. See, it really isn't me that's the party pooper as I even celebrate because the day of the week ends with a "y"...Any ol' excuse for a drink, ya know...

As a matter of fact, I do recall seeing something about this being pick on your favorite Prof day. Either that or it's the full moon and those solar flares.

Is New Year’s Eve a big deal for people celebrating the Chinese New Year? I have been to some of the best NYE party and we New Yorkers sure know how to party!
