Today is all about Party Prep. We have friends and family over on New Year's Day every year to eat, play games, and watch football.
Today is the grocery store run. There are things we have every year, and new things we try. Everyone brings something to share, and we all eat way too much.
Then, of course, we need to get the Christmas decorations put away so there will be room for everyone, and get the house spiffed up. And I need to remember to buzz by the church to borrow a table to set up in the living room. New Year's Eve for us is always about the prep for the next day instead of staying up late to ring in the new year.
