POTD: Happy New Year 2014

I was just chatting with an Indian friend who works for an MNC yesterday and I remarked that New Year’s Day must be the most prolifically declared public holiday in the world – even more so than Christmas Day.

As we step into the first day of 2014, here's wishing everyone a great year ahead! Taken with a Nikon D600 with 24-120mm lens, at Suomenlinna, Finland.

He agreed but duly informed me that in India, it was not a public holiday since the country observes the New Year at different times of the year, depending on the local calendar.

“新的一年由今日开始。新的开始由今日起步。祝大家在2014年享足好运,心想事成!” – 科技点心(微薄)

Christmas Day, on the other hand, is a public holiday in India because it is a religious day.

Well, you learn something new everyday.
