Re: New Year's Eve around the world
- Fred, et.al.--
Thanks for sharing that. I celebrated by making some bravcove knedlicky (actually Polish pierogi). filled with pork. It was always a tradition in our house, that you had to have bravcove for New Years. The Polish butcher shop only makes them for New Years. Now I have to wait until Easter until they make sekanice again. That's another long-standing tradition, and I look forward to it.
New Years Day was spent taking down the Christmas tree and the lights, decorations, etc. and that's how I spent my day. Now comes the long cold winter until Easter.
BTW-- I'm I certified old-phart any more, and I was in bed by 10:30. There might have been fireworks around here, but I slept through them.
