The New Year

Page 5
In towns there is the custom of “fortune cookies” as young people from villages used to have knot shaped bread in which they put apple tree branches.
At midnight, between the old year that dies and the young one that comes to life- the lights went out for a second. This moment symbolized the darkness, the chaos before Genesis, before the Sun. The moment of Terror disappeared and the joy and everybody’s wishes come to life while people wait for a new cycle of work. A HAPPY NEW YEAR!
