A Family New Year's Celebration

party hats, New Years, noisemakers, party poppers, champagneEvery holiday, event and occasion is an opportunity to make memories together as a family.

Our family New Year's Eve celebration starts with a trip to our Town's "Family Night" event at the community centre - free swimming, skating, curling, crafts, bouncy castles, balloons, clowns, a magic show and a cake cutting ceremony by the mayor. Fabulous family-friendly fun for kids and parents alike.

Back at home we set out a late dinner buffet of fun party foods -

- veggies and dip, crackers and cheese, shrimp, spring rolls, chicken rolls, mushroom poppers, mozzarella sticks, phyllo-wrapped meats and cheeses and heaping platters of holiday cookies and chocolates. We pull out the party hats and noisemakers and glow-in-the-dark bracelets and necklaces, turn up the music, and count down the last few hours of the year gorging ourselves on junk food in a frenzied Wii Sports competition.

When the clock strikes midnight the kids burst the party poppers, showering the living room in glitter and confetti, and we all celebrate with a champagne toast. Our final good-bye to the old year is with a round of fireworks and sparklers in the backyard.

What a perfect way to welcome in the new year with the the people we love best in the world!
