Years ago, members of a panel were asked, "What do you do on New Year's Eve?"
One panelist said, "I sleep through it."
"How's that?" the host asked. "You mean you don't party or pray or watch the ball come down or anything like that?"
"Why would you sleep through rather than see the new year in?"
"To me the year is like life," the panelist responded. "You go to sleep in one then wake up in the next."
