Happy New Year to all on Wigan World. (It's only 4 pm here in western Canada, but I am thinking in Wigan time). I met my wife exactly 48 years ago so it has great memories.


Comment by Thomas(Tom)Walsh on 1st January 2020 at 00:29
A very happy ' Hogmanay ' to all Wigan Worlders.


Comment by Maureen on 1st January 2020 at 08:33

All the best to the WW contributors, especially the PAD creations.
Itís a pleasure to check out PAD from across the pond each day.

A hauntingly sad scene, but from what I hear probably not surprisingly a not uncommom one of Wigan these days


Comment by Maureen on 1st January 2020 at 16:30
Well I certainly think it's better than having a bare space..I would also like to wish everyone on P.A.D. Wigan Worlders ..plus the people that run the whole show,Ron and Brian a Very Happy New Year and wish everything you wish yourselves..bless you all.


Comment by Pat McC on 1st January 2020 at 16:34

Comment by Alan on 1st January 2020 at 19:31
What you don't like new years eve parties and drinking with friends and family, come on irene let your hair down for a change, its once a year.


Comment by fw on 1st January 2020 at 19:56
Go through the doorway, and maybe back in time,
To the Wigan I remember, the place that was mine.
Back to my school days, my first day at school,
I hated every second and cried like a fool.
I screamed at my mother, not to leave me that day,
Her face wrenching heart, will forever always stay.
Then to my church, engraved on my soul,
My faith written in childhood,
and deeper now I'm old.
All of my friends, all the moments that we shared,
are locked in my special box,
through a doorway, just a glimpse and a word..


Comment by irene roberts on 1st January 2020 at 20:08
Alan, we are all different. Most people celebrate New Year by, as you say, letting their hair down at what, to them, is a time for celebration. I have never seen it like that and have always found it a sad, wistful night. This isn't because of people in my life who have died or because of advancing years; I have always been like that and am entitled to be so, and I can also tell you I am not alone in this. I hope that you and everyone who DOES celebrate had a good time. xx


Comment by Linma on 1st January 2020 at 20:33
Beryl, my centiments exactly. Irene, i don't like New Years Eve either, personal reasons. Son who is a Firefighter on duty last tonight (and tonight) cleaning up after drunk drivers. And a Happy New Year to one and all.


Comment by Helen of Troy on 2nd January 2020 at 08:13
A touching verse fw...thank you.


Comment by Garry on 2nd January 2020 at 09:31
Alan, going out drinking is not the be all and end all. Most drinkers would have had sore heads yesterday anyway.
My enjoyment is stay in with my dog in front of the coal fire watching tv drinking sherry.


Comment by irene roberts on 2nd January 2020 at 09:53
fw, that's lovely.


Comment by Veronica on 2nd January 2020 at 13:43
The days when all the doors in the street would open at the same time. Neighbours running across the cobbles to wish a happy new year. It was taken quite seriously then. I have never known it so quiet where I live, not many wizz bangs going off either to say it was a new decade. People seem to go away more now. I even forgot to open the front door to let the new year in and the back door to let the old out! I did it in the morning and remembered Mam and Dad, that's what they did every year! I am still awaiting a tall dark stranger to step over the threshold!!! ;@)) It might take till next year - all grey haired now!


Comment by Philip G. on 2nd January 2020 at 14:09
"The days when Ö . I see a bit of the 'prose poet' in you Veronica.


Comment by Veronica on 2nd January 2020 at 16:13
Ah! Well Philip, one has to look back at New Year... It seems the most appropriate time, the new ones are coming so thick and fast, there's a need to hold on to what can be remembered, before it fades away...


Comment by Johnny on 10th January 2020 at 09:16
I remember the old traditions Veronica.
Always remember Mam waiting for me to come home early New Years morning with a piece of coal, slice of bread and a penny in her hand and I was expected to cross the house threshold with 'em!
