(We ran this a year ago and weren’t planning to do it again, but this past bummer of a year lent this definition new relevance.)

NEW YEAR’S DAY, n. An arbitrarily chosen day, celebrated for its arbitrariness, in which the horrors of the previous year are forgotten in anticipation of those of the year to come.

The American Heretic’s Dictionary (revised & expanded), the best successor to Ambrose Bierce’s Devil’s Dictionary
