If you have signed a lease for next year and it has not started yet will you be held accountable if you break it to purchase a new home?

User Avatar
It really depends on your lease, though in general there is some sort of forfeiture. Consult your lease -- usually these things are spelled out. If not, ask an attorney about the laws in your particular state.

Why do we sing “Auld Lang Syne” on New Year’s Eve?

User Avatar
“Auld Lang Syne” is a Scottish folk song that roughly translates into “Old Long Since” or “For Old Times’ Sake.” It became a New Year’s Eve favorite in the U.S. thanks to Canadian bandleader Guy Lombardo, who hosted an annual end-of-year concert in New York City starting in 1929. In 1965, Lombardo told LIFE magazine that he chose the song “because Auld Lang Syne is our theme song—and was long before anyone ever heard us on the radio. In our particular part of western Ontario, where there’s a large Scottish population, it was traditional for bands to end every dance with Auld Lang Syne. We didn’t think it was known here. When we left Canada we had no idea we’d ever play it again.” The popularity of Lombardo’s yearly concert helped the song become a U.S. tradition to celebrate the end of the year and the beginning of the next, and its status as the New Year’s anthem was reinforced in classic Hollywood films such as An Affair To Remember and It’s a Wonderful Life.

Where did celebrating New Year's Eve originate?

User Avatar
Answer The custom of celebrating old years or new years eve has something to do with the Pagan god Janus (who also is the reason for the name January). Janus was a two-headed deity (or god) who had one head looking at the past (meaning the old year) and the other head looking towards the future (the new year). New years celebrations originated from the worship of Janus.

Summary of the interview by Christopher Silvester?

User Avatar
Part - I The Interview - a commonplace of journalism: Since its invention a little over 130 years ago, the interview has become a commonplace of journalism. All the literates must have read an interview at some point in their lives. Different opinions about Interview: Some claim that an interview is a source of truth and in its practice,· it is an art. While some others think that interview is an unwarranted intrusion into their lives and somehow it diminishes them. Part-II Umberto Eco is a professor at the university of Bologna in Italy. He has accomplished a good reputation for his ideas on semiotics (the study of signs). He has written'! wide range of books. His novel 'The Name of the Rose' brought him name and fame. Mukund asks Umberto how he can do so many things in his life. Eco reveals a secret about himself. He says that we all have a lot of' empty spaces' in our lives. He calls them 'interstices'. If we fill empty spaces with our work, we can achieve a lot of success in our life. He also tells Mukund that he considers himself a university professor who writes novels on Sundays. He became a novelist by chance.

When does the new academic year in Australia begin?

User Avatar
The new academic year in Australia begins in the new calendar year. Schools in most regions of Australia tend to return just after Australia Day (26 January), depending on which day that date actually falls. In regions where the temperature is much hotter, such as Alice Springs in central Australia, the new academic year does not begin until February.

How did the superstition of kissing at the stroke of midnight on New Year's Eve start?

User Avatar
Any excuse for a kiss! Some people have the superstition that failing to kiss someone on New Year's Eve predicts a year of loneliness. It is also thought that person you spend the first moments of the new year with will set the tone for the rest of the year. In Biblical times the act of kissing or touching one's lips to those of another (Pr 24:26), to another person's cheek, or, in an exceptional case, even to his feet (Lu 7:37, 38, 44, 45), served as a token of affection or respect. Kissing was common not only between male and female relatives (Ge 29:11; 31:28) but also between male relatives. (Ge 27:26, 27; 45:15; Ex 18:7; 2Sa 14:33) It was likewise a gesture of affection between close friends. - 1Sa 20:41, 42; 2Sa 19:39. Kissing might accompany a blessing. (Ge 31:55). Kissing at midnight on New Year's Eve is common in movie scenes, such as When Harry Met Sally.
