Most well-adjusted, rational people don’t believe in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny or Bigfoot. But many of those very same people still believe the striking of midnight on one particular night of the year somehow resets a cosmic button — thus expunging them of all behavioral shortcomings from the prior year.

“I’ve been saved. Wipe that slate clean!” we say to ourselves silently as glasses clink around us. “Next year will be different.”
