I wish you all a Happy New Year & Bonne Année and best wishes for this coming year 2020. 

I just hope 2020 will be much better than 2019. This past year has been weird, violent, controversial and unprecedented at so many levels and in so many countries around the world. I do not want to enter any debates and spoil the end of the year spirit and festivities, so I will just say that I'm just hoping things will change for the better and people will come back to their senses to make this world a better place for everyone and the coming generations.     

Be nice to each other and take good care of each other. We can work this out if we are all willing to make a change and change our habits and behaviors. 

I wish you all a happy end of the year, hoping you will be surrounded by friends and/or family to celebrate it. I'm also thinking about all the people that will be alone these days, hoping they will be ok. I wish 2020 will be a better year bringing you health, love and happiness to you, your family and friends. 

In French, 2020 is written "Vingt Vingt" and pronounced "Deux Mille Vingt" (Two thousand twenty) but could also be read and pronounced "Vin Vin" (Wine Wine), hence this little illustration I made for this very special year. 

As for the Christmas card and post, I posted previously, I decided to write "Happy New Year" (ou "Bonne Année" in French) in various languages on the illustration as wine is universal and is the only product with food, which bring people from all horizons together to share a moment, share their cultures, their traditions, their opinions and talk about everything and anything seating around a table,  drinking and eating together, despite their colors, religions or political views or even social ranks.  

And I like this optimistic, utopian idea of having people together, united, reunited, in peace with each other, sharing moments with each other rather than argue or fight with each other. I respect all races, colors, religions and opinions, yet I'm one of those atheists who believe that the world would be a better place without money, religions and politics.   

I let you meditate on this, and once again, Happy New Year and best wishes to your family and friends. 

As this post may reach many different people in many different countries with many different languages, here are the various ways of saying "Happy New Year" written on the illustrations. I choose some of the most common languages spoken on our little earth. 

Sorry, no offence if you cannot find yours, I couldn't put all the translations, too many and not enough space on the illustration. Moreover, and no offence once again, I choose some of these languages for the uniqueness of their written characters, rather than personal preferences.

Polish: szczęśliwego nowego roku

Serbian: Срећна Нова година (Srećna Nova godina)

Thailand: สวัสดีปีใหม่ (sawatdii pimaï)

Voilà! Et encore une très belle année 2020 et tous mes voeux de bonheur, joie et de santé pour cette année a venir. 

Cheers! Santé!
