There is an unofficial theory that how we spend our time on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day will set the tone for how we spend the year. i.e. eating healthy black eyed peas on January 1 encourages good eating habits.
I've long ago ruled out noisy parties and hangovers.
This year's 48 hour menu includes:
Loving Family and Friends
Nice Food and Drink
Challenging and Rewarding Work
Books to Read
Yoga and Walking
Giving and Receiving Gifts
Can housework wait until 2013?
How are you bringing in the New Year?
1 day ago
Coffee and homemade soup
Sorting, cleaning, giving away, discarding
Trying to think outside the box
Connecting with family and friends
Thinking about a nap
Right on. I dislike the crazy party stuff. Love spending it quietly - New Year's Day there's an annual ritual and silent time with a group of women. We select a word for the New Year and put a New Year's Log of the fire. It's wonderful.ReplyDelete
I pretty much stayed in my jammies til 4 p.m., then took a walk.ReplyDelete
That does not bode well for 2012!
