Ball drop or brunch? Which one is for you?

Happy campers on New Years Eve and happy parents the following morning. Talked the older kids into attending a small party with us in the neighborhood. Which means they weren’t running the roads. I don’t get the big New Year’s Eve blowouts.  And so glad I don’t have the sore head that often comes with those shindigs. I would much rather celebrate on New Years Day at a brunch followed by a nice nap. I guess that makes me boring. What about you? Do you prefer ball drop or brunch? Did you watch the ball drop with thousands? Or at home? Will you celebrate today? Or last night?

  1. What a great looking family!

    As for me, my husband and I had a nice, quiet evening at home, nibbling on appetizers and cheesecake, and sipping champagne. Much better than going out into the snowy weather and dealing with drivers who had been drinking.

  2. So we typically fall asleep in from of a movie around 9:45pm, wake up at midnight when the neighbors shoot of fire works, then go back to sleep. On New Year’s day, I take down the Christmas tree and watch the Twilight Zone marathon on the SciFi while my husband cleans up leaves in the yard.

  3. Fireworks are legal in Denmark, from December 27th to January 1. In the space of those days, the Danes buy about a trillion kroner worth of them (per family it would seem) and let them lose on NY Eve. It’s astonishing. It’s like a war zone. This year, instead of resenting it from our apartment, we took our two boys out in the midst of it, safety goggles and all, and I have to say, it’s a trillion times better to be in the thick of it than it is to grumpily listen and watch it. Yesterday we had an afternoon get together with other families. So a bit of ball dropping AND brunch. Perfect. I didn’t drink for either, so I have to say, it was glorious to wake up without a hangover! Happy one to your and your lovely family!
