Does anyone have any fun plans or traditions that they do for New Years?
For New Years Eve, we are having DH's cousins (all around the same age as us) over for a Game Night at our house with board games and snacks. Nothing too exciting, and who knows if I will even be able to stay up to see the ball drop this year (I've been going to bed exhausted by 10 every night lately.)
On New Years Day it was always tradition in my house when I was growing up to have kielbasa, sauerkraut, and baked potatoes for dinner. I have NO idea why. No one on either side of my family is Polish or Eastern European, or anything else that might explain that - my dad's Mexican and my mom is of Irish/Scottish descent. Maybe it came from the area of the country I grew up in (central OH?) In anycase, I always associate that meal with New Year's Day, and DH and T both like it, so that has become the tradition in our house too.
