New Year's Celebrations

The start of a new year is often a time of making resolutions and setting out to make positive changes in your life. Writing down your New Year's Resolutions is one way to record your life story. At the end of the year you can look back and see what resolutions you were actually able to keep throughout the year. The goals you have in your life are an important part of your life story.
Another important part of your life story is what you did to celebrate New Year's Eve or Day. Did your family do anything special to celebrate? Are there any particular New Year's celebrations that you remember? What happened and why do you remember it?
My family didn't stay up till midnight to see the new year in. But New Year's Day was a day of new beginnings. My mother wanted to put away all the Christmas Decorations and clean the house so we could start out the new year fresh and clean. Staying up late to see in the new year isn't one of my favorite things to do. I like my sleep too well.
Record what you did for New Year's and let your family know about the traditions you grew up with.
