New Years Eve & time

Time is relative, it becomes even more clear around New Years Eve;
Here we’re preparing for the evening, filled with good food, perfect wines, a game and together watching the clock ticking away the last seconds of the year. At the same time people living in timezones East of us have already celibrated the start of 2006 already…it makes you think, what’s the true importantance of our clocks and supposed ‘control’ over time, eh?
