It is hard for me to believe that another has came and gone yet again. Now here we are just a week away from Christmas & just 2 weeks until 2013.
I am not one that makes new years resolutions. Do you? When I was younger I used to. If I ever failed at anything, it was at these resolutions. I soon realized (for me) that I got farther completing a goal when I did it because I wanted to. Not because it was the time of the year that everyone done it.
I was also thinking about things that people say about New yrs. I remember always hearing that whatever you were doing when the clock struck 12 on New yrs eve, is what you would do a lot of the rest of the year. I remember my sister grabbing her coin jar every year counting it until midnight. To her credit it came true. She was a waitress and all year long she would be counting her tips daily
Another practice I don’t normally do is special food for new years day. What is it. Some people eat black eyed peas or cabbage on New years day for good luck.
So what do I do on New yrs eve then?
John and I usually go out and get all kinds of fun snacks. Maybe not typical New yrs snacks. But just stuff we like. We sit around with a glass of wine and snack and watch the apple or ball drop. At midnight we do kiss.
So now it’s your turn. What do you do? Any special traditions? Do you cook on New years day?
