Forget diets. Forget debt. Today marks the intersection of 2009 and 2010, and all you need for a New Year’s resolution is to come to an intersection—literally. In order to kick off the New Year (and new decade), the folks at HiChristina have orchestrated a spontaneous gathering called Love Corners. Instead of rushing to your first rendezvous of the year, or avoiding eye contact with passers-by as usual, HiChristina challenges you to try spreading a little love on a street corner. Wear something red, smile, hold hands with other red-clad strangers, and watch silently. After 15 minutes, call the HiChristina hotline to let them know about your experience. And then go out for drinks with your newfound friends. After all, who says you can’t talk to strangers in New York?
