A string of excited, fugitive, miscellaneous pleasures is not happiness; happiness resides in imaginative reflection and judgment, when the picture of one's life, or of human life, as it truly has been or is, satisfies the will, and is gladly accepted.
~ George Santayana

I like the end of the year because it is a time of reflection. Except for vampires. They don't have reflections. And I would guess, if you live forever, celebrating another "new year" is probably tedious after a while.
I would, however, go see a movie called "Vampire New Year's Eve." Especially if Meryl Streep and Chris Cooper were in it. I'm not sure that they would do a movie called "Vampire's New Year Eve," though.
For the record, there is a child vampire standing on the scooter in the photo above.
