New Year Tradition

What better way to ring in the new year than with traditions? The New Year has its own set of traditions just like Thanksgiving or Christmas. Here are a few of my favorites.

1. Resoutions. Millions of people create lists of things they resolve to accomplish every New Year.  My resolutions used to include a variety of items, such as lose weight, start a new hobby and so forth. Usually I fail at my resolutions by February. Yet I still continue to make them.

2. NYE parties. The roomie and I used to host epic NYE house parties complete with friends, favors and food. Also I've attended a couple of awesome parties with my squad hosted  by club promoters. The key to a fun party is having the right people to help you celebrate.

3. Watch Night Services. Growing up the child of a preacher man meant I spent a lot of time in church, especially on NYE. I will be bringing in 2016 at church for Watch Night Service. The name stems from the night before the Emancipation Proclamation went into effect. Slaves watched the night in preparation for their freedom and praised God. I shall write more on Watch Night Service on NYE.

What are your New Year traditions?

  1. I was thinking, fireworks are part of my tradition.
    Also, watching the ball drop in Times Square (on TV of course) and toasting the New Year with "fancy" crystal glasses of sparkling cider.

    1. I always say I'm going to buy fireworks but never remember. And I love sparkling cider!
