1. How long does your Christmas tree stay up?
This is an ongoing disagreement in my house. If I had my way, the tree would stay up until Jan 6th, if not later. My husband prefers it to be down before the new year. He won this year, because I was too sick to fight the take down.

2. Do you have plans for New Year’s Eve?
Not this year. I think I like it? I’m not sure though, I’ve really come to like hosting all the holiday get togethers.

3. Do you have any New Year’s resolutions?
Not really. I’m going to extend last year’s weight loss goal and try again this year. I definitely made progress (which I’ll talk about in an upcoming post), but I need to get back to a healthy weight.

4. How did you spend New Year’s Eve when you were younger?
ALWAYS at home because my mom always said there were too many crazies on the road to be out. I might have spent one at a friend’s house, but I can’t remember clearly. At home, we’d always make nachos and our last batch of Christmas cookies for the season and watch Dick Clark.

5. What was the best way you’ve ever spent New Year’s Eve?
Wow, that’s a tough question. New Year’s has always been a quiet holiday for me. Maybe the 2008/2009 celebration? It was an impromptu party hosted here because I was VERY pregnant and didn’t want to travel and no one else had plans, so they all came here. If I remember correctly, we almost missed the ball dropping because we were too busy playing Rock Band. 🙂

  1. 1. How long does your Christmas tree stay up?
    It usually goes up somewhere between Black Friday and December 10th and comes down sometime during the week after New Year’s.

    2. Do you have plans for New Year’s Eve?
    Yes, I am going out to dinner with my family.

    3. Do you have any New Year’s resolutions?
    The ones my doctor would like me to have – exercise more, eat healthier. Easy to say, hard to put into practice.

    4. How did you spend New Year’s when you were younger?
    I’ve been spending New Year’s Eve the same way for about 30 years. I always go out to dinner with my family.

    5. What was the best way you’ve ever spent New Year’s Eve?
    One that I remember is when we got an ice storm and every inch of the trees were covered in white with their limbs heavy and hanging across the roadways. It was a very beautiful sight. The type of snow you usually only see in holiday movies.
