Today is the day to ditch the New Year's resolutions which you made under duress, or from a sense of obligation to yourself or someone else. Today is the official day to rid yourself of these unnecessary burdens. Get rid of the resolutions you have already broken. (Yes, I know. It has been 2-3/7 weeks since the year began.) Too, you should dump the ones you will break later on. Do it now and save the aggravation of carrying them any longer.
If you are one of those righteous souls whose efforts toward your avowed goal are intact and you are feeling mighty good about yourself, good for you. Soldier on. You are under no obligation to observe this day in the practice, so observe it in the breach.
No one seems to know the origin or the originator of this holiday, but trust me, it is real.
Have you made any resolutions which you are still keeping, and intend to keep?
