Past Winter Solstice at 2012-12-21 11:11 (UTC) and Perihelion at 2013-01-02 04:37 (at 0.9833 AU, 22.9° days getting longer again (though currently woefully slowly) (is Jupiter still bright in the evening sky? long time no see) ; ... moving towards Vernal Equinox (if Earth's still spinning, then) at 2013-03-20 11:01.

Now the weather: It's fucked. It's getting worse. And it's your fault. Have a nice end.

***    SEASONS GREETINGS - 2140  (2013/02)  ***

((  (unverified)draft/Entwurf, inArbeit.  Corrections welcome !  ))

Nach meiner Schaetzung werden wir für den Grossteil des gregorianischen Jahres 2013 das Jahr ... schreiben / i'd estimate that in most of the gregorian 2013 it's the year ...
5774 Hebraic (Jewish) ("creation" 3761 'BeforeChrist')
5126 Mayan
4650|4711 Chinese (one of; a lunisolar calendar; #2)
2140 Tibetan (#1)
2013 gregorian
1434 Islamic (
lunar, Hijri; prophet: ?570-632 A.D.)
139  Pataphysical
109  Thelemic (liber AL, 1904 e.v. )
68   Atomic (1945)

#1) Tibetan year-count starts with the crowning of Nyatri Tsenpo as the first Tibetan King in 127 "B.C." -  and the official Tibetan New Year, Losar, is celebrated on the first day of the first month of the Tibetan lunar calendar and it falls around the February new moon. The first month is called Hor-zla (Mongolian month) because of their Mongolian connection. -- Losar 2140 is on 11th of March "2013"; 2139 was a year of Water Dragon, and 2140 is a year of the Water Snake.

#2 according to the (awk "seldom-used continuously numbered system" 2012 == 4709 or 4649 or 4710

'New year' of the gregorian calendar was copied from Roman calender(s), --probably marking the start of a session-period in the Roman Senate!-- and seems totally arbitrary nowadays; imho this alone is sufficient reason for getting rid of "pope gregor's" calendar. The chauvinism of using the alleged birth-year of some mythical figure as year '1' another sufficient reason.

There was a total lunar eclipse on 2010-12-21 (time-lapse-vid on utube ) and  a partial solar eclipse on 2011-01-04  ( images )
Earth passed through perihelion on 2011-01-03 at 18:31 GMT (at a distance of ca. 0.9833 AU), saw a (total) LUNAR ECLIPSE on  2011-06-15; passed through aphelion on 2011-07-04 at 14:52 GMT (at a distance of ca. 1.0167 AU); is past VERNAL EQUINOX : 2011-03-20 23:20 GMT (dist.:  0.996 AU)  and  we're past WINTER SOLSTICE : 2011-12-22 05:29 (UTC) and past perihelion on 2011-01-05 at 00:31 GMT (at a distance of ca. 0.9833 AU). As Earths orbital velocity then is at maximum, winter(on N-hemisphere) in the shortest season.

I sincerely do hope that you and yours are not joining the all-too-common custom of using Xme$$ or "new"years or similar as excuses for thowing out money for hard drugs like alcohol or for fireworks and similar environMENTALLY-destructive stuff !?

CETERUM CENSEO [and I still do think:]
we should/have-to(if we want it to survive) heal humanity of christianity and similar anti-rational dis-eases; and -amongst others- get rid of  XXXme$$ and "pope gregor's" calendar.

           IMAGINE a world without religion !
