Abstract

Holidays and special events around the world, both secular and religious, are feasts of remembrance. They remind celebrants to rejoice, to give thanks, to be renewed, to begin again, to honor and emulate former heroes, to rededicate life and living, or to stop and regain perspective. New Year's Day is a feast of remembrance as we let go of the past and resolve to be and do better in the new year. A new millennium offers increased incentive for change, and hope for a bright future emerging from the past. For many households it is a time to sort the clutter of the past and keep only what is needful.
