Perpetual New Year's Eve https://en.wikipedi...i/List_of_calendars
Well, how about that? We could've restarted 2020. Keep this in mind if 2021 starts acting up. [Sgt Teacup, Dec 31 2020]

       I want my year back.
Voice, Dec 31 2020
  

       Well, seeing how the calendar and dates are arbitrary there's no reason you shouldn't unilaterally declare that tomorrow is 1st Jan 2020.
pocmloc, Dec 31 2020
  

       I like it over here on this side of the sun.

       It’s always New Year’s Eve somewhere in the world
hippo, Dec 31 2020
  

       [hippo] says 'It's always' New Year's Eve somewhere' which sounded preposterous, due to Earth's rotation and such, so I checked. True fact (see link).   

       Happy New Year's Eve, wheneverwhere you are!
Sgt Teacup, Dec 31 2020
  

       ... but don't forget, when it's midnight in London, in Norfolk it's still only 1625 (and the next witch-burning is tomorrow, on the village green).

       Ah yes, London, that cosmopolitan hub, beacon of international co-operation for the ambitious youth of all of Europe...
pocmloc, Dec 31 2020
  

       Ambitious youth of all ... where ? You mean that benighted wasteland lying east of the Channel Islands ?   

       The one that innumerable immigrants make desperate efforts to leave at every opportunity, and get to England ? Understandable, of course ... who would want to live in somewhere where they barely speak English, have weird food, and is absolutely crawling with foreigners ?

       Isn’t there an applicable lemon law we could invoke?

       I want to see us all back here this time next year. Nobodys going anywhere. No time-jumping, passing away, quitting, deleting, or ghosting for 4 years allowed. Time must come to a standstill. After last year, that is not too much to ask, now is it?   

       For real, Happy 2021. May you be healthy, may you be joyous, and may you be blessed with abundance.
blissmiss, Dec 31 2020
  

       Thanks [bliss] - and here’s to a 2021 full of happiness and companionship for you!
hippo, Dec 31 2020
  

       Glad to see you here, and wish you were ...
normzone, Jan 01 2021
  

       [blissmiss] That's lovely, and I raise my measuring cup full of milk to Paul Dear.   

       Happy new year!
beanangel, Jan 01 2021
  

       Happy New Year, [beanangel], [hippo], and all bakers everywhere. Somehow, it already feels better.
blissmiss, Jan 01 2021
  

       Happy 2021 [bliss] and all too - may 2021 be a kinder and gentler year for everyone.

       May 2021 is only 1/12 of a year
pocmloc, Jan 01 2021
  

       <Gratuitous and unnecessary pedantry>   

       Actually, it's 8.48752% of a year (31/365.2422) which is slightly more than 1/12 ... (8.3333%)   

       </Gratuitous and unnecessary pedantry>

       Of all the various options, you chose the Tropical year as your "length"? I would have thought a planet-hopping collective would use the Sidereal year...
neutrinos_shadow, Jan 01 2021
  

       Ye gods, you don't say that someone in the class was not only awake, but actually paying attention ?   

       Quite correct. Now, to earn a Gold Star*, can you explain why we chose to use the Tropical year in combination with the "Gregorian" calendar, instead of the Sidereal or the Ephemeris year length ?   

       *Which will be placed on the Class Achievement Chart at a slightly different Azimuth and Right Ascension than most might expect.

       //why we chose to use the Tropical year// expenses paid research trip to the Bahamas?
pocmloc, Jan 01 2021
  

       Sp. Ascension
pertinax, Jan 02 2021
  

       Sp. fixed.   

       Spellchecker got "Sidereal" wrong, too ... hmmm.
8th of 7, Jan 02 2021
  

       //Gold Star//
Ha! You should know better than to offer me impossible incentives. Stars explode long before being able produce gold in a stable way.
neutrinos_shadow, Jan 02 2021
  

       I ordered a bunch of croissants for everyone but the order was late because due to Covid… Happy new day with a year attached.
xandram, Jan 02 2021
  

       Well mine arrived fine! Thank you
pocmloc, Jan 02 2021
  

       Oh, that's what that strange package on my porch was...
blissmiss, Jan 02 2021
  

       // You should know better than to offer me impossible incentives //   

       "We'd have gotten away with it too, if it wasn't for you pesky kids ..."
8th of 7, Jan 02 2021
  

       Yup, 2020 won alright. Here's a toast the year that changed the most!
21 Quest, Jan 02 2021
  

       I too ordered a bunch of croissants (cheaper by the crate, lemme tell ya) and they're very nearly crowding me out of the house. Can't wait to offer them out this year.   

       Hope everyone didn't get what they didn't want this holiday season and won't get what they don't want for the rest of 2021. Whoever I managed to annoy thus far, I apologize, and whomever I somehow have not yet annoyed I hereby apologize in advance.   

       Cheers! Take an extra week off -- you deserve it!!
