Today's theme is New Years Eve!
New Years Eve has been one of my most favorite parts of the holiday season, but I don't really have any traditions. Growing up, I did my best to stay up until midnight and I remember watching the Nickelodeon countdown hosted by Stick Stickley. I also remember making homemade confetti and yelling and throwing the confetti at midnight.
This year I finally have the option to see that ball drop live and I am thinking about NOT going. Everyone that I have met in New York has told me that it is a tourist trap of crazy and NYE is much more fun at a friend's house or other event. I am still weighing my options because after 20+ years of watching that ball drop on TV, I feel like it's not right for me to skip seeing it live when I only live a few miles from Times Square.
Other then watching the ball drop-- New Years Eve only means hanging out with friends and family, usually drinking, and of course eating small foods like mini quiche or stuffed mushrooms :) Bring on 2012...I hope it's a doozy :)
