This giveaway is for the Amish novella collection, The Amish Christmas Candle by Kelly Long, Jennifer Beckstrand, and Lisa Jones Baker.

Today’s special word is: that

With all of the focus on Christmas, sometimes we forget that the New Year is right around the corner. But the new year is coming quickly. When I was young, I loved to go out for New Years Eve, but now my tradition is a quiet evening at home with my family. We play games, watch the ball drop on TV, and toast with everyone’s favorite sparkling grape juice.

  1. I don’t have any really. Some years I have a few firecrackers left over from 4th of July in the years before, sometimes not. I’m single and always have been so there’s no kiss on the stroke of 12. I never make resolutions. We don’t have a holiday meal, usually too tired and full of cookies and turkey from Christmas. We don’t have TV so I don’t watch the ball the drop. Pretty much I’m the only one who stays up for midnight, and I always do. So, I guess my tradition is always seeing the New Year in. Last year we watched Bachelor Mother, which has a number of scenes set on New Year’s eve, and I might watch it again this year.

    1. I’m getting a late start on my decorating this year so I may have to keep things up past Jan 1st. 😉 Thanks for commenting Lucy.

  2. We toast each other with sparkling cider at 9pm our time zone since it’s 12am on the East coast then go to bed shortly after. We’re too old and tired to stay up till midnight….lol! We do watch the ball drop on TV though 🙂

    New Year day is just like every other day for us.

  3. Watch a movie and try to stay awake til midnight. Usually go to bed by 11:00.

  4. We usually just watch TV. Sometimes we’ve gone outside if the weather’s clear to see the fireworks on top of pike’s Peak.

  5. New Year’s Eve I spend reading. New Year’s Day Eating shrimp and black eyed peas and reading.

  6. I don’t have a New Year’s Eve tradition any longer. WHen i was little it was watching the ball drop and the parade and snack foods and football.

  7. My kids and I treat New Years Eve and Day like any other day, no biggie in our book.
