So John asked me today if I was making pork & sauerkraut tomorrow. I had never heard of that until Balloon Juice – where does that even come from?
I didn’t even know there even was such a thing as New Years Day traditions. At our house, New Years Eve was the big deal. I may have told you guys that my parents owned a tavern, and we lived in an apartment upstairs (actually, 2 apartments with the walls knocked out between them).
New Years Eve was a huge night in the tavern, with hats and noisemakers. We had those upstairs too, and we could hear the moment that it struck midnight from the outcry downstairs. But New Years Day was just a regular day at our house.
So what are your traditions for New Years Eve and New Years Day?
What were they when you were growing up, and what are they now?
Tell us about them, if you have them!
