Happy New Year!! Best wishes and good reading!
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

Kalo Podariko!

My husband, who is first-generation Greek and was taught Greek as a child, takes his revenge by teaching me snippets from time to time. This is a traditional greeting for New Year’s Eve. As in other countries around the world (notably Scotland, which figures in my own heritage and in the new book I'm working on as well), the first person to set foot in one’s house in a new year can bring either good or bad luck.

The custom goes that immediately after the stroke of midnight, all the lights in the house are turned off and everyone goes outside. Then a particularly lucky person, often the youngest child, steps back into the house, right foot first. All other family members follow, also entering with the right foot, and all the lights are re-lighted for the new year.

May we all be blessed by good luck and many wonderful HF books to read in 2011!
