My pen says it all

Slept in 2010, woke up in ‘11

with 4 comments

Most of you must be thinking that I have written my subject as a metaphor to show my laziness of last year 2010 and ambition to work hard in 2011 … well! it’s not like that. There is no metaphor here, it means literally that I slept on 31 December 2010 at 11pm and woke up on 1st of January 2011 at 7 early mornings because it was my work day. People around the world were celebrating, I don’t know why they were happy; but I was getting ready for work. But question is why the world is always celebrating the beginning of a year? What is so happy it? May be New Year bonus! ; But why to waste them








Before writing this article I tired to read something about the Gregorian calendar or Western calendar which is mostly used around the world. I came to know some very interesting facts; like Gregorian calendar is named after Pope Gregory the thirteen in 1582 by a signed decree and some of the arithmetic discoveries like this calendar counts days as the basic unit of time, grouping them into years of 365 or 366 days; and repeats completely every 146,097 days, which fill 400 years, and which also happens to be 20,871 seven-day weeks. Of these 400 years, 303 (the “common years”) have 365 days, and 97 (the leap years) have 366 days. This gives an average calendar-year length of exactly 365.2425 days, or 365 days, 5 hours, 49 minutes and 12 seconds.

Before I use to think, the earth completes its revolution around the sun in 365 days; so people celebrate to hurry the earth that YOU DID IT!!








Whole night I watched the news of beautiful and colourful fireworks going on in New Zealand, Australia and china; as they were among the first countries to welcome the new year. On the first day everyone wished me Happy New Year and told stories what they did. I wished them back as formality but reminded them that I am always happy. (alhumdulillah)

At the end I would like to say one thing; everyday is a new day, new beginning bringing its new day celebrations. So keep enjoying everyday of your life with colourful fireworks. Still I would like to wish happy New Year to everyone; may this year bring peace, happiness and blessings to the whole world.

Never mind the article, it is just my silly way of wishing.
