    Default New Year\'s Day traditions ???

    Just thought I'd see what New Year's Day traditions y'awl had.

    In my area, most of the horse owners (guys only), get together around 10 am on New Year's Day. We're all saddled up in Western garb, and ride out to a local saloon to imbibe some spirits and start the New Year right. The ride back is usually comical!

    For the past 31 years, with only two exceptions, we have shared New Year's eve with another couple. We hit a couple of parties (in the last 20 years, the same ones) staying at one until 10 PM and the other until 1 AM. Then we go back to one or the other's house, play bridge until 6 AM, then have a steak, egg and champagne breakfast. The visiting couple heads home and we sleep until Noon or so. The two exceptions were family emergencies, one to each couple.

    I know it doesn't sound very exciting, but we look forward to it because it has become such a tradition.

    My side of the family get together for what we call a fat fry. Yep everything we make has to be Beer Battered. We make onion rings, cheese curds, shrimp, fish and chicken. We even battered turkey gisards once. Pretty much makes up our new years day.

    Couple of the latest released movies,
    Fresh popped Detroit Popcorn, (itís the worlds best)
    Peeled shrimp and a good spicy cocktail sauce,
    and a bottle of my own home made wine.
    We might even be awake for the New Year.
    Get up early in the morning and call all our friends and family that partied all night to wish them all

    Happy New Year. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    We're not big party goers, so on New Year's Eve, we fix a "special" dinner for any family members wanting to be around. Special means anything that we haven't had recently. After dinner, we start our movie marathon. Everyone who is staying has agreed to what the movie theme will be for the year (action Adventure, Comedy, Musicals, etc.). Depending on how many people will be around each person chooses two or three movies in that theme. Then we start watching them after dinner. We'll usually get through 2 or 3 before people start pooping out, so we all turn in and start again on New Year's Day - AFTER the Rose Parade is over. Basically, for the rest of the day it's just lay around watching movies and eating whatever you want to eat!

    Not terribly exciting, but no one in the family will allow the tradition to die off! [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Happy New Year to you all!! [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
