Happy New Year 2015! あけましておめでとうございます！
(Revised Jan 1, 2015)
Well the year 2014, with all its ups and downs, has ended. Thank god! It was a difficult year for me. I hope that it was a good year for you.

2015 is the the Year of the Sheep in the Chinese Calendar. It is said about the sheep:
"I am a passive onlooker
I let bygones be bygones
Goodness brings me fortune
I believe in the human race
I understand the meaning of giving
My cup is never empty
I am loyal and just and in others I trust
I am the sheep"
I wish that you and your family have a safe and healthy New Year's holiday.
May all your dreams come true in 2015.
God bless you and yours with health and prosperity.
