  1. Even though it is a cold night here in Bermuda I say well done again to all those who are responsible for the events in St. george’s and Hamilton as we can come together on this night as one people being thankful that we have made it this far to end off another year and to begin 2013.

    To all Bermudians and residents alike I would like to say Happy New Year and may the God of Heaven bless you in abundance this coming year and strengthen each and everyone of us to go into 2013 being very hopeful of our future and reconize as a country that if we put Jesus first nothing is impossible.

    God bless each and everyone of you and to the staff at Bernews thank you for putting up with us all year long with our very nice blogs and sometimes not so nice blogs but in all truthfulness we appreciate you for giving us the oppurtunity to give us a voice to our Island home and beyond in trying to make a possitive difference in the lives that we live and the things we are faced with in these beautiful Isles.

    God Bless.

    Sorry but I should have gone St. Georges. The music was drag up until after the New Year and then they played nice music. Fire works on a big screen REALLY!!!!!!! We have got to get better than this. Next Year a trip overseas sounds good!

      You’re right you should have gone St. Geos since it might be the last year fireworks are done on any end of the island. Fireworks cost money that the current government doesn’t have since the previous splurged year after year. What Hamilton had was good enough for the kiddies to have a bit of celebration & that’s all that’s needed since there’s way too much adult catered fun on this island than stuff for our young. Maybe by 2099 our island would have got over the self induced millions of dollars debt & we can have a grand centennial celebration but till then we have to make due with what we DON’T have.
