I love the entire concept of New Year's Eve celebrations surrounding reminiscing over the old year as it ends, and looking forward to the new year with all of it's infinite possibilities and opportunity that it holds. I don't think all that many folks share my sentimental feelings about this holiday, and I am not sure why.
I know, I know. We don't have to wait for New Year's Eve to make a resolution. We've all heard the quote from L.M. Montgomery's Anne in Anne of Green Gables say “Isn't it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?” and I heard Oprah once say you can make a resolution any time and any day, and yes, she is right. Still, to me, there is something so magical about the ending of one year and a new one beginning, and I always feel so filled with hope when I think of it.
One of my dearest friends is flying in to welcome in 2017 with us, and so I'm even more excited this year.
My booth space at Camas Antiques has a nice collection of New Year's goodies. I've added banners and flags, and a few cool little treasures to help celebrate the holiday.
It was hard for me to part with those huge mugs, as I can envision us sipping some cocoa out of them on New Year's morning, but....I'm really out of room in my cupboards to store them.
How about you? Are you a die-hard romantic who loves New Year's Eve? I'd love to hear!
