Last week we wrote about Christmas Memories in our Sharing Memories - A Genealogy Journey Journal. I hope everyone will join me this week to talk about memories of New's Years.
Did your family (or you) make resolutions? Did you have wild New Year's Eve parties? Did you watch Dick Clark every New Year's Eve? What memories do you have of that night, or do you recall your parents' telling you about?
I don't have memories of anything special as a child or a teenager, so I'm going to talk about the traditions started as an adult with a family of my own. For the past 25 or more years, my second oldest brother and his family have joined us to celebrate the New Year.
We watch a bad movie (that's part of the tradition, it must be a stinker), get take-out Chinese Food, and reminisce about previous years. Our children were part of this tradition but gradually they began doing their own thing. Now our children are grown with children of their own, but my brother and I still carry on our silly little New Year's Eve tradition.
Join me in writing about your New Year's Eve memories or traditions in this week's Genealogy Memories Journal!
