Happy Birthday Andrew!

It's New Year's Eve day, and Guillaume and Angela are comfortable in their apartment. The snow stopped falling (Angela wants to move to Tahiti and never see snow again). Guillaume is preparing the filet mignon for dinner tonight. Angela is very happy about that.

Every New Year's Eve in Boston is celebrated as "First Night." This has been a part of the New Year's Eve celebration in Boston since 1976. There are artists and performances all over the city. For some things, tickets must be purchased. For others, like the gigantic ice sculptures at Copley Square and the Boston Common, no tickets are necessary. There are also fireworks at midnight on the Boston Harbor.

Guillaume and Angela will take a walk through the city later tonight to see some of the ice sculptures that have been created during the last week. Hopefully the ice won't melt before they get there.

And of course, today is Andrew's birthday, so...
(Imagine this is sung in a pretty voice)

Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday dear Andrew
Happy birthday to you!

Thank you Angela, you have a wonderful singing voice. And what could be better than hearing it sung in Italic?? :^)

I made a New Years wish that I shall post on my blog later. I want to make some progress on a painting first. Have a cosy day!!
