Of course, almost everyone celebrates on December 31st for New Year's Eve, and those who can't make it to midnight celebrate on the First of January, New Year's Day.
And then the Second rolls around -- and no one wants to party!
Well, I don't know if that is true or not, but if your birthday happens to be on January 2nd, then HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!
Oh, and since today is the second, I also looked into ordinal numbers used in the poetry of Emily Dickinson poetry, and I found five: first, second, third, fourth, and fifth. I didn't find a "sixth" of anything higher.
Interestingly, I found one poem that used all five of the numbers, "Finding is the first act":
Finding is the first Act
The second, loss,
Third, Expedition for
The "Golden Fleece"
Fourth, no Discovery --
Fifth, no Crew --
Finally, no Golden Fleece --
Jason -- sham -- too.
