Happy New Year: talking about wishes
Starting a new year is always something intriguing. We don’t know how the future is going to be, what we are going to do. I mean, yeah, for sure, we have certain expectations or continuities but life is a surprise. We don’t know for certain everything in advance and that, somehow, is good. Why? Well, because it allows us to add some spice to our routines. Something unexpected happens, like love for example and it twists our way. Besides, if we knew everything from the day we were born, wouldn’t that be absolutely boring? For me, yes, 100% sure. I’d rather be afraid of the unknown than tired of the same old thing. Maybe not afraid, but eager to know what the next step would look like, how everything will turn… That’s thrilling!
Anyways, making a balance of the gone year and thinking of the next one is based, again for me, on one premise: wishes. What do you wish for? A wish is like a quest, right? We wish for something we are looking for. What can that be? Are you looking for a new job? Directions in your life? Maybe travelling? Write all that down and make a wish list. Who knows, maybe you end up in the most unpredictable scenario and all thanks to your lucky stars. Grab that sheet and make your life happen!
Happy New Year in Spanish, your best lesson
One of the wishes for this upcoming year could be learning Spanish. Also, wishing it in that language can make it more familiar, what do you think? So let’s wish a Happy New Year in Spanish, shall we?
The most traditional way of saying it is “¡Feliz Año Nuevo!”. I found it funny that some say “Felisa me muero”, which means “Felisa I’m dying”, but since the phrase is phonetically similar to “Feliz Año Nuevo” some use it as a joke. No, no one is actually dying, take it easy. In a more general tone, you can wish “¡Felices fiestas!” (Happy Holidays!) to everyone and no one gets mad because it includes every festivity of the year.
