Do you have any New Year’s Eve traditions?
I am all about holiday traditions. Christmas talent shows, fondue and gingerbread houses are just a few examples of traditions
I force upon my family that we observe.
But New Year’s Eve is tricky.
By this time in the year, I don’t have the energy for anything elaborate. Yet, a fresh new year calls for something special.
Last year I made aebelskivers and we hit a piñata.
But, truth be told, the aebelskivers were “meh” and just weeks ago at Miss Rae’s preschool Christmas party, she sobbed when her classmates hit a piñata, so I wasn’t anxious to reinact that scenario.
So this year, we made chocolate covered strawberries (among other things) and played Mario Cart.
It was pretty fabulous.
I did, however, keep one tradition.
My red sparkle shirt
This year and last year.
Because, really, when else can you wear a red sparkle shirt?
What are your New Year’s Eve traditions? Can I borrow them?
