Godt nyttår til alle sammen!

Happy New Year to everyone, or to be more political correct for those who celebrates new year on another date: Happy holidays!

Have a great New Year and watch for the blue moon

Lunar Blue Moon fun facts:

-- A blue moon is most commonly defined as the second full moon in a calendar month. Contrary to popular belief, it does not have anything to do with the color of the moon.

-- The last blue moon was on May 31, 2007 and the next blue moon is Dec. 31, 2009 -- New Year's Eve!

-- A blue moon occurs every two or three years. Even rarer is a blue moon on New Year's Eve, which only happens approximately every 20 years.

-- A rare event indeed! The last New Year's Eve blue moon was in 1990 and the next one, following 2009, won't be for almost 20 years -- 2028.

-- No blue moon of any kind will occur in the years 2011, 2014, and 2017.

-- Usually months have only one full moon, but occasionally a second one sneaks in. Full moons are separated by 29 days, while most months are 30 or 31 days long. Hence the possibility of fitting two full moons in a single month.

-- Historically, people referred to the twelve full moons by different folk names to prepare for different times of year (harvest moon, growing moon, etc.). In years when there were 13 full moons, the extra, early moon was called the "blue moon."

Happy New Year to you all. How many nationalities observe the tradition of making a new year's resolution? Mine is to clean my tree!

Most Americans will say "Happy New Year." Many will add an additional wish, such as mine -- May the New Year treat you kindly.

@Arthur, I make resolutions every year. I make about half a dozen, knowing that I will keep about half of whatever I make. I am also resolving to work on merge issues more promptly in 2010.

@Alice, This once-in-20-years "blue moon" is the topic of many newscasts. I hope it brings good tidings to all my Geni friends and relatives.

Hi Bjorn,

Bjorn, the heavens opened here, last night....a line of massive thunderstorms came in over the Bay, and lit up the sky for us...it was beautiful! :) Lynne

Mother Nature's fireworks is the best and I was quite disappointed with the fireworks in Kongsberg today.

We need some official fireworks now, because all the new restrictions made the private fireworks almost invisible because it not even reach over the treetops.

I never spend money on fireworks my selves because you never see your own fireworks well, but today I was not even able to see the neighbors fireworks.

Anyhow, happy new year again!

Bjorn, that would be disappointing! Official fireworks are the only way to go. But having said that, I must confess that in some states here fireworks are still legal, and so we have quite a few private "displays" which aren't necessarily confined to public events. Diwali (the Hindu Festival of Lights) is a big one in Melbourne, with many Indians setting off firecrackers in the streets. Love it! Happy New Year, Bjorn! :)
