Amy Coffin of the We Tree blog came up with a weekly challenge to write your personal genealogy and history. I am a little behind in writing mine so over the next week I’ll get caught up.
Week 1 – New Year’s
Did your family have any New Year’s traditions? How was the New Year celebrated during your childhood? Have you kept these traditions in the present day?
As a child my parents would let us stay up to ring in the New Year. We ate pizza rolls, had soda and other treats. I remember watching the ball drop in Times Square.
In the present day I end up going to bed before midnight but wake up at midnight when the neighbors start shooting off fireworks. My husband stays up with the boys, who don’t always make it to midnight either.Tweet
