Which of these 50 New Year’s tradition is your favorite? Have you participated in any of these fun, unique, traditions?
I must say, South Africa’s “out with the old and in with the new” appliance drop could make for quite an interesting evening, and a bit of clean up the next day. Just watch which window you stand beneath! And I think I will add France’s stack of crepes to my own New Year’s celebration this year. Yum!
How Do You Celebrate The Arrival of The New Year?
I must be getting old! My idea of the perfect New Year’s celebration is at home, with family and a few friends. As midnight approaches, we break out champagne for the adults, and cider for the kids. Then we’ll gather around the TV for the iconic ball drop in Times Square, New York City, and top it all off with a round of Auld Lang Syne. Yes, I know, not all that exciting, is it. But we are happy, and that’s what counts, right? My nights of partying past midnight may have gone the way of my super skinny jeans, but the symbolism that is New Year has not.
How do you ring in the New Year? Party past midnight at an extravagant New Year’s Eve event, or hang out at home with family and friends? Do you have any special New Year’s traditions that you follow year after year? Do share!
Happy New Year To You And Yours! May it be filled with much happiness.
