An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in.
A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.
Whichever way you look, may the new year have a lot in store for you....
One can expect a lot from this year...
The year that's starts with a Blue Moon and an Lunar Eclipse, tells you in advance this is an year of opportunities and challenges. Incidentally this is the longest annular eclipse in the 21st century.
This is the year of Commonwealth 2010 (New Delhi), when India grows beyond the glory of Asiad '82.
The year when telecom industry gets number portability and 3G.
On the Global front we look forward to the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. The Burj Dubai in Dubai, United Arab Emirates will be completed. It is already the tallest man-made structure ever built. The 2010 Winter Olympics will take place in Vancouver and Whistler, British Columbia, Canada.
Incidentally, 2010 is also a 1984 science fiction film released by MGM and directed by Peter Hyams. "2010: The Year We Make Contact" is a sequel to the 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey, and is based on Arthur C. Clarke's novel 2010: Odyssey Two, a literary sequel to the film.
One thing is common with these events is, they are "BIG"! and like the movie name suggests this is our year to make contact and make it even bigger in every field we are in.
