Celebrate the New Year Together

By

Celebrate and Create New Beginnings in Your Marriage:

Do the two of you celebrate New Year's Eve the same way every year? Try celebrating the new beginnings in your marriage by ringing in the new year differently this year.

Here are some suggestions to get you started.

Consider Who You Celebrate New Year's With:

If you normally party with friends or go out for New Year's eve, stay home this year and have a quiet evening with just one another.

If you usually spend New Year's eve at home watching the ball drop, round up some friends for a game night or go out for the evening to celebrate the beginning of the new year.

Consider Where You Celebrate New Year's:

If you've been in your own locale for most of your New Year's celebrations together, hit the open road and be a bit adventurous.

You probably don't have to drive far to locate a quaint B&B. Another option is to take a cruise together.

New Year's Celebration Ideas:

You can celebrate New Year's Eve and New Year's Day in both traditional and new ways.

Brainstorm with one another some new ways to celebrate New Year's that you would each like to try.

  • Play classic card or board games.
  • Work on a jigsaw puzzle together.
  • Reflect on the past year with each other.
  • Eat and enjoy traditional foods:
  • Make plans for the new year and schedule time for each other on a new calendar.
  • Make a New Year's resolution together.
  • Call family members and old friends who are far away.
  • Watch a movie together.
  • See the ball drop in Times Square, or watch local fireworks on television.
  • Play in the snow or go ice skating together.
  • Watch the parades or sports events on television.
