The famous Happy Birthday.
To end 2016, I was in my Church for thanksgiving. I joined my Parishioners at a Thanksgiving Mass. We all prayed and thanked God for the blessings and even the challenges of 2016 which were all put on our path for our good. We then prayed for a happy, and prosperous New Year.
My spouse and I got back home and stayed up till it was 2017. We greeted the New Year with prayers that God may make it a good one for us, our family and the whole world.
We listened to all the fireworks that greeted the New Year from all parts of the city.
At 5 a.m., we were up; and at 6, we were again in Church to thank God for making us see the new year and to pray for New Year blessings.
During the Homily (sermon) the message of Pope Francis to the people of God was read. It was a lovely message that centered on peace and non-violence. He called for nonviolence in homes, communities, countries and the world and exhorted all to seek solutions to conflicts through peaceful means.
Our kids later took their turn to go to Church.
Take a look at the agenda of our celebration:
-A common meal;
-A common drink;
A smooth transition, isn’t it? If you don’t mind it, let me have a hint of yours.
I must admit, I’m afraid of the dark. Everytime the night is upon me I shiver and tremble and my mind is filled with terrifying thoughts. That’s why I sleep with a night-light. Last night was just like any other night. I kept my small fish bowl light on and I tucked myself in well, careful to leave no body part uncovered. You see, Ghosts are afraid of blankets (apparently). After doing that, I began to doze off and had just reached that creamy layer of dreamy sleep, when suddenly, I heard a THUMP! I woke up startled!
I was terrified, and I strained my ears trying to listen, hoping that the sound was a figment of my imagination. THERE IT WAS AGAIN! I jumped out of bed and looked around searching for a weapon. I took my phone and dialed 911 just incase I needed help, (does the police cater to miserable people being scared witless by ghosts?). I repeated the Pythagoras theorem over and over again softly, it was oddly reassuring. ‘Maybe the ghost is scared of maths?’ I thought, idiotically. As I tiptoed down the stairs with my heart beating wildly, I thought about all the boys I had kissed (none) and all the pizzas I would never be able to eat. That’s when I saw it, an eerie light coming from my kitchen. I could feel my skin prickle and I felt like vomiting, every muscle in my body screamed for me to run away like Usain Bolt. I bolted (hah! See what I did there?) down the stairs, screaming some absolute gibberish, I forgot what I said but it was something along the lines of, ‘DON’T YOU DARE DEPRIVE ME OF PIZZA CASPER!”.
I reached the bottom of the stairs and I stopped dead in my tracks, the scary ghost was my younger brother. Turns out he had run away from home and needed a place to stay, and since I live 20 blocks away, I was his best choice. Really though, the lesson I learnt from this was to not give my house keys to my family.
