What are your New Year’s Eve traditions?

“For New Year’s Eve I just hang out with friends and family now, but when I was in high school I would watch whichever Lord of the Rings movie was out, decorate my room, dress up drinking fake wine, and watch the ball drop on tv.”

“My only tradition is that at midnight my family calls each other to wish everyone a good year. But my favorite New Year’s Eve is from my junior year in college when I stayed with a friend’s family. We played games and talked with their visitor from Kenya. It was really fun.”

—Sarah Reamon
owner of Epic Coffee House, Rockford

“Every New Year’s Eve our old church would rent the local YMCA and have a family night. It allowed us to spend time with not only our family, but other families as well. During the day we visit friends and family and watch a lot of football.”

—Anita and Eric Erber
Rockford

NOTE: Anita and Eric just moved to Rockford last month from Trenton. “It’s a great and gorgeous place. We’re not used to as much snow as there is here, but we like it,” they said.

“When I was younger I’d go out with friends to restaurants and drink champagne. Now we just have a family dinner with prime rib, mashed potatoes, and veggies. For me, that’s how I know New Year’s is here. When you were younger, New Year’s was exciting; as you get older you don’t want it to come as soon. It’s also more about family rather than going out with friends.”
