How do you ring in the new year?

Holidays like New Year’s Eve are so much more manageable with traditions — especially in a city like New York, where revelers tend to get a bit crazy. For a few years, we went to a party at a friend’s loft, until it became too much of a burden and he stopped hosting it.

Now, we’ve developed a new tradition that’s a better speed for parents. Close friends whose children were born around the same time as my son was get together, get take-out, put the kids to bed, and toast the New Year around, oh, 10:30 or thereabouts. Then we all go to bed and hope we aren’t too tired at 6:00 the next morning, when those children start to wake up.

What are your New Year’s traditions?

  1. Is there still going to be another planner giveaway? After the last one over 1 month ago you wrote there would be another one. But it never came, right?

    The same thing happened 1 year ago. It would help me plan a bit (the irony!).
