Swearing Off Day

New Years Resolution time again. Did you make one this year? The Frontier Signal which was an early paper covering the Grande Prairie area had thoughts about the ups and downs of our New Years resolves.

“…There’ll be so much of shining virtue, when first the year is ushered in, it would astonish you and hurt you, if you should stumble o’er a sin. But in a month we’ll all be hedging — we are not angels, we are men; we’d find it pretty heavy sledging, the flesh pots will look good again. Oh, this desire for better living is quite heroic and sublime; but we might gain more ground by giving up one bad habit at a time.”
