More Happy New Year

When I was a kid, we'd watch Guy Lombardo and at midnight, under the watchful eyes of my parents, we'd go outside, bang pot lids together and yell Happy New Year. We didn't this year; there was no Guy Lombardo so we watched the Marx Brothers and when midnight rolled around we weren't inspired enough to make a racket. Oh well.

This is an old CdS from the Post Mag and I've posted it before. These are lazy days.

My family watches Marx Brothers movies almost every New Year's Eve, and this year (or is it last year?) wasn't an exception. I'd forgotten how hilarious they all were- for the era, it was really about as good as anybody could get. :)

Happy New Year! This is one of my favorite holidays- a time to relax and indulge in snacks and old movies.

I love the alarm clocks about to go off in the last panel.
