Hello Lucy and Stefan!
Thank you for explaining about Silvester. I guess he is the Patron  
Saint of New Years Evening? Even though I lived in Denmark once, I  
never heard of Silvester. That is new for me. Thanks for educating me!

I have really enjoyed hearing from List members about the different  
holiday celebrations around the world...There are so many  
differences...even within the European nations...

Here in the US, generally, New Years Eve is a time to go to parties,  
drink, laugh and enjoy a late evening with friends, and count the  
minutes down to the New Year...Some fireworks perhaps, and some funny  
hats and confetti...smile...

Then on New Years Day, there are football games and the Rose Bowl  
Parade in Pasadena, California...a time to relax with family.

2006 will be a great year, filled with many SignWriting events...

I will be back on the List January 2nd, 2006!

Val ;-)
