Sum novus ut pura puer ortus virgine Christus. Sic tibi sit foelix hic novus annus. homo.

By the way, the Latin translates as:

I am as new as Christ child born of a virgin pure, Mortal, may your new year be just as happy and sure.

I don’t claim the former, but wish you the latter!

Happy New Year from Ian and Karen
