Happy New Year!



Hello my Dear user!
I've been thinking ... and why wouldn't I congratulate you with New Year, especially because I have all possibilities in order to do that. And so ...
Congratulations on this most interesting and magical holiday! I wish you, first of all, to have really decent goal that makes life worth living. And aslo I wish you to have enough power to be able to reach this goal. And, of course, good luck to achieve it.
Alexey Sedov

P.S.
I've been thinking, that much more interesting when congratulation accompanied not just with 'taken from the internet postcard' , but with something more significant. Therefore at home I recorded melody which, in my opinion, quite good suited to the occasion. Authorship and performance, made by me :)
