The autistic coder in me never understood why we paste printf("Happy New Year\n"); readline(); at the top of every conversation during the holidays.

But for once I'll follow protocol. Happy new year, HN!

Because it's important to acknowledge crossing an arbitrary boundary we all agreed was important, and wish each other well when we do it.

I don't get it either.

Happy New Year to you all.

In this short, brutal life you have to seize any opportunity you can to celebrate.

Happy New Year :)
