Bye Bye 2013

31st December 2013

Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

Today’s show has been full of fun New Years Eve facts. An article out today lists the top 5 most bizarre NYE customs from around the world. From banging old bread on the walls in Ireland to throwing old furniture out the windows in South Africa, there are some crazy superstitions out there. We in little old England prefer singing Auld Lang Syne and waiting for a dark haired person to walk in the door........I suppose if you actually know the dark haired person, and it’s not a burglar, then he should bring you luck for the new year.

Another thing we all try to do is come up with at least one resolution for the New Year. I’m planning on losing a bit of weight in time for all the weddings and hen do’s I’ve got lined up. None of them are mine obviously. Perhaps I should make a resolution to have a boyfriend by the end of 2014 instead???

You all know how much I like a good list, well I found plenty today, recapping 2013 by showcasing the top 10 favourite singles, movies, and TV shows to name a few. David Beckham topped the list for most attractive male and I was pleased to see both Ryan Gosling and Benedict Cumberbatch in the top 10 as well, although I’m unsure as to why David Tennant is third????? No offence but I mean come on!! Best single went to Daft Punk with Get Lucky, while the most favourite film of 2013 went to The Hobbit, which I’m ashamed to say I still haven’t seen.

I’d like to finish off 2013 by listing some more useless fun facts; my gift to you for the New Year:

In Venice a mass kissing tradition takes place at the stroke of midnight in San Marco Square (germs galore)

The first place to see in the New Year is the Christmas Island which celebrates at 10am GMT

You can take a private jet from Sydney Oprah House to LA (if you’re loaded) and celebrate New Year twice in one night.

Whatever your own superstitions are and whatever you’re planning on doing to see in the New Year I hope you all have a good one and I’ll see you next year!!
