I'm sure many of us will be happy to see 2021 in the rear view mirror! Happy New Year to all and may 2022 treat us all better. It's been a tough couple of years for many of us.

Are there any traditions out there that you observe for New Year's Eve or New Year's Day? My wife and I really don't have any (unless "not going out" is considered a tradition 馃槂 ). Dinner tonight will be lobster tails, potatoes for DW and radishes done the same way for me, and whatever green vegetable looks best at the grocery store. There's probably enough treats left over from Christmas that we don't need to do anything about dessert. Ideally we'll stay up to watch some object drop from a height somewhere on TV and we'll call it a year.

How about you all?

Working rotating shift work for 40+ years, we hadn't really developed anything traditional. Now that I'm retired I guess we could start.

Last year I made black eyed peas and cabbage and am fixing to start a batch for 2022 as soon as I find last years recipe.

No real traditions, at least not since I quit eating black-eyed peas. It's usually just a quiet day around the house.
My mom loved having "pea parties" with her friends on New Year's! She once told me that she finally figured out that her luck wasn't good because she ate purple hull peas instead of black eyed peas on New Year's Day!

Well, the lobster tails were a hit; I traded the potato/radish dish for a baked potato (DW) and a little black soybean spaghetti (Aldi's) and steamed broccoli filled the rest of the plate. We ended up watching our 1yo grandson so the celebration around midnight was subdued until midnight fireworks on the TV woke him up. 馃お We all survived and are looking forward to a 2022 we can be proud of. 馃槵

Looking back on past years, it has been a tradition to watch college football bowl games on New Years Eve and New Years Day if I wasn't working. Being retired now allows that tradition to return without interruption. I must say that this years Rose Bowl today was about as exciting of a game as I've seen in a while.

I heard it was a pretty good one. Probably better than the NHL Winter Classic for this Wild fan. Missing three top players and they looked like they hadn't played in about a month. 馃槙
