2018: Happy Hogmanay & New Year!

As has become our custom, we take a break from serious blogging to welcome in the New Year with an exchange of greetings, favourite seasonal music, comical stories and jokes, all of which must fit into the category of “good clean fun”.  Enjoy! 

Warning:  anyone allergic to the “music” of bagpipes (!) should avoid the above video!

Happy New Year folks! 

2016: What Kind Of Year Lies Ahead?

As we approach the end of 2015, and await the midnight bells to welcome in the new year, it might be helpful to reflect on the usefulness (or otherwise) of making new year resolutions.  Here are some thoughts to kick start the discussion (and jokes are welcome, as well, always in the category of “good clean fun”)    happy-new-year-animated-gifs-images

A New Year’s resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other.

My New Year’s resolution is to stop hanging out with people who ask me about my New Year’s resolutions.

 If 2015 was a person, I’d sue him for pain and suffering and lost wages.

I have only one resolution. To rediscover the difference between wants and needs. May I have all I need and want all I have. Happy New Year!

Finally… Alongside reflecting on our new year’s resolutions (if any), and sharing some fun stories and jokes,  if you’re in a more serious mood, be a spoilsport, feel free to share your thoughts on  what it is that you would most want to see happen in 2016 in both the world and the Church.  Over to thee!  

A Happy New Year To All Our Readers!

As you would expect from a Catholic blog dedicated to promoting Tradition, we offer our readers a traditional Hogmanay greeting – Auld Lang Syne (“for the sake of old times”…)

Feel free to post your new year greetings, jokes and anything that comes under the heading “good clean fun” to mark the passing of the old year and the arrival of the new.

Can’t think of any new year jokes right now but I know that tomorrow, I’ll remember 2013 like it was yesterday 🙂

Happy New Year everyone!
