    Nothing special New Year’s Eve, but New Year’s Day we gather his children, my children, spouses and all the grandchildren. We eat, play games, and just get caught up. It is a great way to start the new year – as my grandmother used to say – start as you want to go. The family gathering is perfect!

  2. Susan B says:

    This is the first year I participated in a New Year’s Mystery Quilt on New Year’s Day. That may become my new tradition!

  3. Barbara says:

    New Year’s Eve is spent cocooning with my sweetie

  4. Karen says:

    this special time is usually spent with friends or family getting together to nibble munchies, play games and then at the final moment, watch the fireworks on TV… Jan 1st is spent restoring order to the house by packing up remaining Christmas decorations and in particular, getting the sewing room ready for new projects…

    We celebrate New Year’s Day quietly at home in front of the fireplace and watching the ball drop on the television. Then I make a pork roast with saurkraut for my husband.

    My hubby and I go out to dinner on New Year’s Eve and spend the rest of the evening watching a movie and waiting for the “ball to drop”. New Year’s Day we always host a “Football Frenzie” party. Basically he has a bunch of buddies come by to watch the bowl games while I spend the day in my sewing studio! Great way for me to get a start on any upcoming sewing projects or finish off anything that didn’t get finished before the end of the year.

    Just sit around with family, watching the ball drop.

  8. Evelyn says:

    Our New Year’s Day tradition is to go about one hour away to Pasadena to watch the Rose Parade in person. Then we go to our favorite Pasadena pizza restaurant for lunch before heading home.

  9. Lindasue Harris says:

    Tradition: Order take out from Outback. Watch something on television. See the ball drop. On New Years Day, my husband wants black eyed peas.

  10. Mary Mac says:

    I worked this year both New Years Eve and New Years Day but every one brought in food and we enjoyed lots of chocolate.

  11. Myrna Goddard says:

    A friend I have know for over 30 years and I usually go out for an movie and an early dinner and home by 9ish. This year however I was privledged to watch my grandson received the 1st place award for his wieght at the SPSL Wrestling match. As much as I enjoyed our movies and dinners this topped all those years.

    I take a break from any real sewing projects for the month of January.
    While on break I organize my fabric and sewing room.
    I also use this month to explore new sewing, quilting and embroidery ideas. In other words, I experiment with new design, sewing feet, fabric, etc.
    This way I am learning and finding new ways to improve my skills.

    New Year’s eve is usually spent purging and organizing areas of the house and putting aside donations of stuff we accumulated. New Year’s eve dinner is a tradtional hot pot cooked on the dining table with various tasty treats. Then New Year’s day each of us is free to pursue our passion. Mine is determining what new embroidery or sewing skill I’d like to learn and utilize for gifts and handy items around the house. Sewing and embroidery are a welcome relief from my high-stress job.
