Yeah, Elly. The calendar was invented by Man. A new year merely observes a full earth rotation around the sun rather than what you were thinking – a glimpse into the future, predictions, hopes, etc. Time and space do not have future or past – just a continuous repetition of rotations of the planet Earth and of the days and of the nights. The future and the past were also invented by Man to measure earth’s age, to establish timeline, to record history, etc. That is not wrong, but to think a new year is a predestination merely because the last digit is changing to the next number is just wishful thinking. Not to say wishful thinking is wrong either – to hope is human, and you are quite human, Elly, but John is practical, and I am with John.
