New Year Toasts

As we start the New Year,
Let's get down on our knees
to thank God we're on our feet. 
~ Irish ~

Stir the eggnog, lift the toddy,
Happy New Year, everybody.

Here's to the bright New Year
And a fond farewell to the old;
Here's to the things that are yet to come
And to the memories that we hold.

As you slide down the banisters of life,
may the splinters never point the wrong way.

Here's to you a New Year's Toast
May your Joy ne'er see a Sorrow's Ghost.

In the New Year,
may your right hand always
be stretched out in friendship,
but never in want. 
~ Irish ~ 

May we live to learn well,
and learn to live well.
May you live as long as you want,
and never want as long as you live.

In the year ahead,
May we treat our friends with kindness
and our enemies with generosity.

Let us resolve to do the best
we can with what we've got. 
~ William Feather ~

May all your troubles during the coming year
be as short as your New Year's resolutions.

May it be the best year yet for you
And everything prosper you may do.

May the best of this year
be the worst of next.

Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring happy bells across the snow;
The year is going, let him go. 
~ Alfred Lord Tennyson ~
