Happy April Fool's Day!

I'm thinking about starting a movement to change the calendar. January is a lousy time to start a new year. We're all fat and broke and exhausted from enduring the other holidays. We're cold and damp, and a little depressed by short dark days. Some of us want nothing more than to curl up on the sofa with a fuzzy blanket, hot cocoa, and a good book. Who has the energy to pursue life- changing goals? Not me.

I'd like to propose starting the New Year on April 1st. Spring is the perfect time to make resolutions. The days are longer, the sun is out---at least part of the time---and some of us are waking up from a long hibernation. It's also April Fool's day. So when we give up on our goals a week later, we can say it was all a joke anyway!

Anyone with me on this?
