Watch Something Bloom
In Ethiopia, New Year's Day, called Enkutatash, begins in September when a long rainy period has just ended and the earth has sprung to life. Children celebrate by handing out bouquets of daisies in the streets. Even if you live in a climate where winter weather makes you doubt the possibility of rebirth and renewal, treating yourself or a friend to fresh flowers can serve as a reminder that spring will come again.
