Champagne glasses clinking together.
A huge crystal ball slowing falling to a countdown.
The ways of ringing in the new year are as many and varied as the cultures in our world. And the traditions are sacred to those who repeat them each December 31.
In my home, dh and I will fix a special meal, or maybe go out to a favorite restaurant. Sometimes the whole family will share dinner, or lots of appetizers, and reminisce about the past twelve months. Then, as the time ticks away, we pop the cork on a bottle of champagne and count down the seconds to midnight–either in New York or Newfoundland, since making midnight Central Time has been beyond us for a lot of years. *giggle*
How about you? What traditions will you repeat this year? I’d love to hear about them.
