Whether you and your family view New Year’s Eve as a time for reflection or as an opportunity to have a huge party, it is a date steeped deep in traditions. This year, invite your clan to start a new first night ritual. Here are some ideas to get your creativity started:
1: Make and frame a photo collage of the past year’s events….. A poster sized frame can be obtained and everyone can have a hand in helping create a masterpiece to display all year around in an entryway, hallway or nook.
2: Deliver a plate of home made goodies to a neighbor… a great time to say hello and to keep up with current happenings in each home so that the other has ideas of what is happening at each others homes…. safety is always a big concern for all of us and if a neighbor knows some of what is happening in your home they know what to look for and vise-versa.
3:Make something old – new again: glue images cut from your old postcards/Holiday cards your family received onto postcard-sized pieces of posterboard or index cards, add a wish for the new year…. and mail them off to those you love.
4:Cover they floor with bubble wrap…. and have the family stomp their way into a new year…. while you start off that resolution to be more energetic and shed the extra pounds.
