Advent Calendar for Grown-ups
by Paul Bommer
DECEMBER 31 Bonne Année / Happy New Year
He is often depicted with his symbols of a key (to unlock the door) and a cock (to crow the new dawn).
2010 was a mixed bag for me. I had many great times and have made some wonderful new friends, as well as making great strides in my work. But I also embarked on a certain venture which caused me a lot of anxiety and sleepless nights, and which I am so glad to have behind me (NOT my Advent Calendar, which, though stressful, was also great fun!). A lesson well-learnt!
I would like to wish everyone an exciting, delightful, love-filled and prosperous New Year. Here's to 2011. Bonne Année à tous!
