You should know that making wishes, dreams, and plans to say goodbye to this year 2018, is an old tradition that we all do in preparation for the new year. We do this, hoping that the new year will be more prosperous than the one we are saying goodbye to.

Many of us make these wishes, on our knees in the church with our relatives and brothers in the faith. Others make their wishes on dance floors, in night clubs, in strip clubs, or in their homes drinking alcoholic beverages. I, myself, make my wishes on my knees a few minutes before midnight in my church. But we all have something in common, we make our wishes at 12:00 midnight when the clock welcomes the New Year.

I want to share some of my wishes with you, beforehand, for the year 2019. They are as follows:

And finally to the rest of you, my friends and foes – Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, and a Happy New Year!

I am Councilman Rev. Rubén Díaz and this is what you should know.
