Happy 2013 to all! What customs/traditions do you and your students use to end the old and to ring in the New Year?

Many look forward to ringing in the New Year with favorite customs and traditions.  What are yours?

In keeping with my Italian heritage we enjoy having a seafood dinner on New Years's Eve....then it is time to party and begin making the pizza   (which my grandmother always made from scratch!) and a family favorite - sausage and onion "impenuladas " (goodness knows if that is spelled correctly!...no one ever wrote it out...).  These are a stuffed bread treat with sausage, onions, cured olives and chunks of parmesan cheese all rolled in a kind of pizza dough, then baked...so yummy!

We would wait for the ball to drop from Times Square setting and serve these treats at the stroke of midnight, along with the champagne toast and the clanking of noise makers.

What memories and traditions do you and your students have?

It will be great to learn about all the other customs...


Wishing everyone a peace-filled and joyous 2013!
