    We've got it all planned out; we each chose a favourite dish from a Chinese Restaurant along with Fried Rice and Egg Rolls and we'll enjoy it.
    Hope you have a great time too. (I'll be here by 11:00 p.m. to greet the New Year and the new Christmas Countdown Thread.

    My Uncle puts on a New Years Eve party. We started playing Cards Against Humanity last year. It's a blast with my family and friends there!

    TCM is running a Marx Brothers marathon (new restorations). Takes me back to my teenage days when a local channel would run Marx Brothers films on NYE. I'd watch them for hours. Good times!

    At midnight I watch the London fireworks on TV, jump into the New Year from a chair or sofa, hug and kiss friends and family and sing Auld Lang Syne.

    We usually spend it my husband's family. Depending on weather it starts with a friendly hockey on the ODR and then a potluck dinner and we end it playing board games.

    Lol... I forgot I even started this thread. I went back and read the posts back to 2014. Wow, the years pass quickly don't they? For me, so, so, so much has changed over the years since I started this thread.

    So, I think I will update my thread since we are now heading into 2019 soon enough. I think, the last time I looked, that my now,(ex wife) is still checking for holes in her eyelids....LOL (that was a joke playing on something I wrote in a former post back in 2014).

    I'm re-married now and have moved on with my life. My (new wife) and I met and we clicked, we have the same interests and tastes and styles. We do not drink alcohol, but we sure have a grand Ole time together. We buy goodies to snack on, steam some lobsters and shrimp, open up a bottle of non-alcoholic bubbly (sparkling wine) and watch movies and then we watch the ball drop.

    We get together with whatever family members can come to my sister’s (where I live now, too), sometimes play games, talk,and have lots of good food...shrimp, crackers, cheese ball, potato chips and dip, veggie tray, etc... we toast each other at midnight with sparkling juice. Also at midnight, one of us opens the front door and blows one blast from an antique tin horn that was brought over from an ancestor from Scotland. We do this because one of the ancestors, who helped raise my mother, used to do this every year. That was the only thing he did to celebrate NYE . So, when he passed away, my mother carried on the tradition of the one blast. With my oldest brother and my mother now gone, it’s up for grabs between my remaining brother, sister, and me.
