I love New Year's Eve. It is a stress-free holiday and it is lots of fun. We always celebrate at 9 p.m. with the East Coast. We start the evening with some good food. I love doing a bunch of appetizers on New Year's Eve.
I also decorate our Christmas tree as a New Year's Tree. I take down all the ornaments and add party hats, noise makers, balloons, etc. I have three balloons with a piece of paper inside with an activity for the kids to do. This past year one was put together a puzzle, another was to paint, and another was to play a candy bar game (kind of like a white elephant).
