Happy new year is a strange thing to wish someone. It’s kind of an obligation- now they have to try and have a happy new year, unless you mean it simply as that you wish they would have a happy new year. Either way, it’s not entirely in their control, and speaking honestly, the odds of most of us having a happy new year are pretty low unless your name is on a lot of gaudy hotels and you’re about to take an oath. So, assuming 2017 has misery in store for most of us, gather ’round and spend your final days of 2016 in misery with us. It’s our default state of mind anyway.
