I remember, as a kid, when I became old enough to stay up till midnight on New Year’s Eve. Oh, I was something else! Every year, it was so exciting and intriguing to ring in the new year. We would go outside and bang pots and pans and yell “Happy New Year!” I’m sure our neighbors really appreciated that!
And before we had kids, my husband and I used to host sleep-over parties with our good friends and play games all night. One year, Judd was going to shave his hair really short , so, he gave himself a mohawk right before our party. You should have seen the faces of our friends when they opened the door! Thankfully, he shaved the whole thing a few hours later!
I’ll admit, the last few years I’ve been a little complacent about celebrating the New Year. But I thought about trying a trick a friend shared with me: Set all your clocks back before bedtime, and let the kids ring in the New Year early. They’ll never know.
So we ended up going to dinner with some friends, and now hubby and I are just going to cuddle on the couch and watch a movie. Someone on Twitter asked “What is the average age that you stop staying up till midnight on New Year’s Eve?” I said I think it is directly related to how many kids you have.
What do you think? And what are you doing tonight?
