Minerva's Breakdown

Support Local Journalism


Dear Minerva:

Each year I face the same struggle. How long should I be wishing people a “Happy New Year?” It feels like it goes on and on. I just know that all of January I am going to be getting emails and face to face “Happy New Years” and it becomes so tiresome — even burdensome. I would frankly be fine if I never had to participate in this vapid cycle of pleasantries that most people don’t even seem to mean sincerely. When can I politely stop participating in this drivel?
