Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.
~Alfred, Lord Tennyson, 1850
Happy New Year everybody! I know it’s been the new year for 9 days already . . . but my last semester of classes doesn’t start until Jan.18, so it doesn’t really feel like the year has started to me yet!
