I’m proposing we start treating January as “Give Yourself a Break” month and not commence the “new year, new me” insanity until February 1. It is the start of the Celtic spring and the feast day of St. Brigid. She is patron saint of printing presses, but I’ve never figured out why, though I expect it has something to do with Wynken de Worde.
