“January is here, with eyes that keenly glow,
A frost-mailed warrior striding a shadowy steed of snow.” – Edgar Fawcett
The Anglo-Saxons called January “Wulfmonath” as it was the month hungry wolves came scavenging at people’s doors but the Romans named it January after Janus, the God of gateways. Janus had two heads so he could look in both directions, back at the old year and forward towards the new year, at the same time. This symbolism can easily be associated with the month known by many as the start of a new year which brings new opportunities. We cast out the old and welcome in the new. It is the time when many reflect on events of the previous year and often resolve to redress or improve some aspect of daily life or personal philosophy.
Every year we make resolutions that we aim to keep. We resolve that we will lose weight, stop smoking, stop drinking, save money and spend more time with our loved ones (among other things). I don’t know about you but by the 30th of January all of my
resolutions seem to have been thrown out of the window. Do you have resolutions that you strive to keep but never do? Or do have amazing willpower and put the rest of us to shame?
However your resolutions turn out, all of us here at the Sale, Hale and Altrincham handbook wish you a happy and prosperous New Year!
