As the Old Year Ends...and the New begins...

✨ I found this image online, titled "Father Time holding the New Year Babe."  
That made me curious because doesn't the old year die as the new year is born?  
As I thought, "Someone had better grab that baby!" I suspected it was really 
a rendition of Simeon in the Temple. So I looked up the image, and sure enough 
it is a painting by Andrey Shishkin titled "Simeon and baby Jesús."  
That event allegedly took place 40 days after Jesus' birth, but I'll take it.  
It is a gorgeous painting!!  It looks ancient but Shishkin is a modern painter, only 58 years old.
