Our favorite place was a local ski resort that had a special package with popular local bands playing. Then, along came children and it became too much of a hassle to go out. Instead, I would prepare a special restaurant-style New Year's Eve dinner. I've continued that practice, including our favorite home made French Onion soup, even served in special soup crocks reserved for the occasion. Since 2006, in addition to the special dinner, I anxiously await "that" email from MVPGA on New Year's Day. What traditions do others have for bringing in the New Year -- party with friends, go to clubs, local fireworks? Do you make resolutions? Even more important, do you keep the resolutions?
