Might i just say, that while we do understand we are not the first in the world to celebrate (hence the title "one of"), howcome we are always quick
to call ourselves "among the first". Sorta like the guy you see in youtube comment pages making the "first" comment.
We had the same on the 21st of December, where people (who were obviously unaware of how time zones work) from around the world looked to us to see if
anything was going to happen - like if a meteor hit us, we would be hit first, then america
because apparently we were the first to see the 21st
All i'm saying is, let's be mindful - there's still NZ and the pacific islands who get little recognition. Let's not get too ahead of ourselves.
We can celebrate without the arrogance.
Besides, what is there in 2013 that can't wait? haha. People were looking forward to '12 and look at what it gave us. 2013 is an entire year that is
starting with political heat on the gun control debate over in the US. And that's just one thing to look forward to.
People are too hopeful
