New Year 2014-2015
Happy New Year everyone! May the next 12 months (and the rest of your life) be filled with all the things you don't necessarily want but are good for you!
In Denmark it's a tradition to jump from a chair (or anything really) right before midnight so that you set off in the old year and land on the ground in the new year for good luck.
When this was first explained to me as a child, I though it meant you could jump whenever and skip ahead to New Year if only you knew the right way to do it.
