I liked your title best. But - I am one who celebrates the new year. If it was a particularly difficult year, then I celebrate the hope of a better year. If it was a great year, then I celebrate all that the passing year brought. I guess you can always find something to be thankful for.
Perhaps you're right about everything being the same, but you know change is a constant thing and there's our paradox. I like your entry; it's different and well thought out.
Yes, the Roman calender is an arbitrary one. The ancients celebrated according to the seasons, celebrating the new year in spring - much more natural.
