From Dickens for Year's End

“Christmas was close at hand, in all his bluff and hearty honesty; it was the season of hospitality, merriment, and open-heartedness; the old year was preparing, like an ancient philosopher, to call his friends around him, and amidst the sound of feasting and revelry to pass gently and calmly away.” – The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens

And remember to spot and call out the many foolish statements "in a Pickwickian sense" that many idling minds will throw out in 2014. It is inevitable.
