    • We believe, in our family, that whatever you are doing on New Year’s Day is what you will be doing for the rest of the year.  We try to spend time with family, being happy, and getting a wee bit of exercise!

    • Traditions.
      I have a large story about traditions.
      For over 26 years I have done what others, my parents, in-laws and husband have asked me to do. For the past 4 years, I have decided to stand strong and not run like a chicken with my head cut off during the holidays. It’s been a challenge and an opportunity (like everything). And the struggle to define my small families traditions has been very heart-felt and difficult. Each year we do things as a small family, sometimes it works other times it doesn’t work as well. I struggle with my internal emotions about staying strong with my decisions, and securities (since I never gave myself the time of day to figure out my own families traditions and feel guilty because I felt required to go to my parents home on christmas eve, then drive in the snow storms to the in-laws the next day). I never had fun with it and always felt very stressed.
      I am doing better and since my daughter is 22 and will be off on her own, graduating college in the spring. It will be interesting how I hold up continuing this process. I know I can do this, but it is a battle with myself emotionally every year.
      I do feel so much better, less stressed each holiday season and that, I am very grateful and thankful for!
      Happy New Year!estatic

    • Mmmm, I’ll be over to help you taste that herring Doreen!

      We really don’t have any new years traditions at our house.  In the old days, my kids’ new years tradition was to go sing annoying children’s song to their dad to make his hangover even more miserable.

      I’ve been thinking it’s time to start some sort of positive new years tradition, just don’t know what.

    • I’m usually asleep before the ball drops, and nothing special for New Year’s Day.  Pretty boring, huh?

    • I plan on cleaning my house. My mom says If you have a clean house before the new year comes then your house will be clean the rest of the year. I think she forgets I have a husband...LOL

      We don’t really have any tradition. Hubby and I just sit around watching movies and then watch ball drop on tv In time square and wake up late on new years day.

    • I usually have a quiet and simple New Years Eve, My big day is New Years. We always have a really nice dinner with good food. This year it’s seafood gumbo as the main dish. Then time with friends and spending time relfecting on where my life is now and what I feel drawn to achieve.
