Know the funny side of New Year and be happy
Very often, the New Year is a time for change- marking celebrations, enjoying parties, making speeches and proposing toasts and exchanging greetings. The toasts and speeches on the occasion require funny quotes to enliven them.

But, people see the New Year eve in three ways. One set of people welcome the New Year with rituals to attract good fortune, some have fun and some others care two hoots for this special day and make fun of it. As Mark Twain has rightly said, ?New Year's is a harmless annual institution, of no particular use to anybody save as a scapegoat for promiscuous drunks, and friendly calls and humbug resolutions.?

Many oldies think that the New Year eve is an excuse for youngsters to break free and look for rave parties, since in December often such parties are held. As Bill Vaughan puts it, ?Youth is when you're allowed to stay up late on New Year's Eve. Middle age is when you're forced to.?

Some people criticize the ritual of New Year resolutions and regard it something that goes in one year and out the other.

Here are some such funny quotes on the New Year and celebrations and resolutions.

?Making resolutions is a cleansing ritual of self-assessment and repentance that demands personal honesty and, ultimately, reinforces humility. Breaking them is part of the cycle.? - Eric Zorn

?New Year's Day? now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual.? - Mark Twain

?An optimist stays up until midnight to see the New Year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves." - Bill Vaughan

?New Year's Resolution: To tolerate fools more gladly, provided this does not encourage them to take up more of my time.? - James Agate

New Year Eve forecast says that it?s going to be mostly drunk with a slight chance of passing out, isn?t that funny.
