*puts on a mask*
…because it is a fools’ paradise. It gives us, fools, a false impression that life will get better. We are deliberately fooling ourselves to believe that a transition to a new time period (which itself is based on an arbitrarily and rigidly established time system) inherently means the arrival of a better future. We love being delusional fools.
Oh, and for that reason, new year’s eve gives us an excuse to be hedonistic. Hypocrites like me love pretending to be profound by celebrating holidays like this one using the pretext of absorbing the wisdom. The ‘verdicts’ of self-righteous organisms that mainstream society genuinely does not care about? We love to hold them with the highest regards, treating them as the literal words of Gods. We want to look good on the piercing goody-goody eyes. We love being exploitable and deceitful.
