From the Burrow: Looks the Same to me   Leave a comment

The men are all saying “Happy New Year” and “Happy Holidays” and “Good tidings to you”. Well I only heard the ‘Good tidings’ thing once, but someone definitely said it.

I’m not certain what this ‘New Year’ is, but yesterday seems more-or-less-the same as today, to me. Of course I know it’s the cold time now (when marmots do a lot of sleeping); and then comes flower-time (when marmots do a lot of eating. And look for new adventures). After flower-time is when the sun is high in the sky and it’s nice just to sit on a warm rock and let the days drift along. And eat flowers. After that, the cold times come back. So this ‘New Year’ must be important to the men, but for marmots and other animals every new day begins as a part of yesterday, and continues into tomorrow.

So I don’t just say ‘Happy New Year’ to everyone – I say ‘Happy Day’! And then I look for good food to eat, and maybe an adventure or two. And I think you should do the same.
