Suck it, 2010
In our house, the New Year’s Eve tradition is to make elaborate paper hats after dinner. This is largely because we are old and can’t stay awake if we don’t have something to occupy us. Here’s mine.
|Yes, it is pretty bad ass, I agree.|
Then we wear our hats while sitting around by the fire. Sometimes we have a spelling bee. We know how to party. When the new year arrives, we burn the hats in the fireplace.
There’s nothing quite like burning shit up to allow for the symbolic release of all that was not so awesome about 2010. I am lucky–2010 brought me a lot of happiness, and if I stay lucky, 2011 will bring me a great deal more. I hope the same is true for all of you.
