Celebrating New Years with your family

Well for New Year's, my husband and I we don't go out to a party with our friends, we really spend it with family. We're normally with his parents or my parents with all of the children, watching the fire-works, we're all at home or we're travelling some place. What we do, before midnight, is we go around in a circle, we all sit around, and each person talks about everything that happened to them that year and all the wonderful things they're really grateful for, and then they talk about what they are hopeful for for the following year. And what that does, it, we also hold a candle and pass it around as we're talking about it, so we talk about what we are hopeful for for the following year, and what that allows is for all of the family to support that person in the new year. So they know and they understand what their goals are so they show up for them in their lives and help them to achieve these goals for this new year. It's a really special time, and again we pass around a candle and it's sort of representing the year that we're in and you blow out that year and welcome in the new year.
