To think a particular day is "New Year Day" is a delusion. In fact, each second is new. It is a gift, a chance, an opportunity, a thing to be celebrated, to be used for your up-lift. That is to say, each second is a fresh chance given to you, for training the mind, refining the intellect, purifying the emotions, strengthening the will for getting confirmed in the conviction, that you are the deathless soul.
(From : Sai Veda, The Word of God, sayings of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba)
