Or maybe it's because after all of the resolutions we've made over the years, we've systematically eliminated all our bad habits and traits (I doubt that very much).

Personally, I enjoy the arrival of a new year. Following the holiday festivities, it's a time when you can wipe the slate clean, be optimistic about the future and prepare yourself for unforeseen challenges. Optimism is an emotion that we as a nation have been lacking since the Sept. 11 tragedy. Coupled with the economic downturn and uncertainty about the economy, the past four months have been emotionally draining for Americans.
