5 Fresh Ways To Celebrate New Year’s Eve. Erin here… I have to be honest–years of hosting New Year’s Eve events as a radio “personality” leaves me with a loathing for the Big Drunken Bar Fest. It’s depressing being the only sober one in the room and trying to give away prizes to people too drunk to remember their name, much less read the teeny tiny numbers on their winning tickets.  Maybe you’re just looking for something different because you’re different–you’re a mom now, or you’re newly single.  Here’s some ideas I found poking around New Year’s Eve celebrations across the globe.

5 FRESH WAYS TO CELEBRATE NEW YEAR’S EVE

1. Wear Red Lingerie: In Italy, it is considered good luck to wear red underwear and lingerie on New Year’s Eve.  It is believed that wearing something red will give you good luck in love and relationships in the year to come.

2. Run: You don’t have to be training for a marathon to want to be stronger and leaner in 2020.  What better way to bring in the New Year than while exercising?  If you can run outside, bring a group of like-minded friends and champagne in the water bottle.  My friend Cheryl snowshoes through the forest with her family to greet the New Year in utter, perfect silence.

3. Jump: In Denmark, they have a tradition of climbing onto a chair and jumping off at the stroke of midnight. How about going a little bigger?  Jump into a (heated) pool or body of water. Jump without fear into the New Year and all the adventures you’ll bring with it.

4. Get Rid of Loose Ends: One of the many traditions of New Year’s celebrations in Vietnam is a purging of unfinished business. Return all things you’ve borrowed and pay off any debts you can. Start off the new year with a clean slate.

5. Burn, Baby Burn: pick up flash paper from a local magic shop or order online from here. Write your worries, troubles, frustrations and things you want to leave behind as you head into the New Year.  Light and throw into a big pan or barrel–they flash white light with a very satisfying “whoosh!” as your troubles disappear along with 2020.

 

Our personal New Year’s Eve tradition? We use sky lanterns-write down a worry or trouble you want to leave behind from 2020 (everything) and a new wish or goal for 2021. Your worries fly away to be consumed by the flame-and your wishes are marked down by Fate to come true. (Obligatory warning: we of course check with the local fire department wherever we do this to make sure we’re following local regulations.)

Five New Holiday Traditions To Try

Five New Holiday Traditions To Try. I’d forgotten the excitement the twins used to show when we’d open the boxes filled with Christmas decorations. Now they’re 19 and too cool (I think they still dig it) to show it. But 8-year-old Zoe is all about asking “where did we get those stars?” And “is it time to see the ZooLights yet?” If you’re looking for some new ideas to try, these are good thought starters…

 

Five New Holiday Traditions To Try:

1. The Christmas Tree Ring Memory String:

The Todd thought of this our first Christmas together, when he grabbed the slice we’d just taken off the tree stump and labeled it “T+E 1997.”  It’s so fun to add a new tree ring every year … and now the Memory String stretches clear across our living room.

 

 

2. The 12 Days of Christmas Melee:

I’ve tried doing the “12 Days of Christmas” tradition, and it’s exhausting.  But if you do it with your family or a group of friends, it becomes fun, intriguing, and usually stupidly entertaining.  Assign one or two of the 12 days to each family member or friend.  They need to do something for another member of the group, in secret, giving nothing away.  It can be as small as cleaning the snow off the car and having it heated up and ready when that person goes to work, or as fancy as a Singing Elf Delivery Gram (don’t ask, my friend Steve delivered it to The Todd, and let’s say Steve enjoyed wearing those Elf tights, dancing and singing a little too much.)  On Christmas Eve, everyone has to figure out who did what or gave what to whom.   There’s laughter, shrieking and some really brilliant ideas that come to light.

 

3. Project Adopt A Grandma/Graduate Student/Refugee Family:

Bear with me.  Sometimes this means coming out of your comfort zone a little.  But there are thousands of people in your city or town that think a day spent with you would be amazing, and it doesn’t need to be on Christmas, or Kwanzaa or Hanukkah, or whatever you might celebrate.

  • For older folks in a care facility, they may not be able to get out to shop for loved ones, mail packages, get their hair done, buy a nice red coat for going to church.  A day with your patience, friendly kids and transportation would make their holiday.  Check in with your local Elder Care facilities and Meals On Wheels for a referral.

 

  • Graduate students at your local college are likely broke, new to town and maybe new to this country.  Some of our very best Christmas Eves were spent going around the room and having everyone talk about what “Higher Power” meant to them.  To Jennika from Ukraine, Higher Power was the feeling she got from her music as a concert pianist.  For Yen from Communist China, the joy he felt from complex math equations “filled his spirit” as he said.  Check with Student Services and the school church groups.

 

  • Refugee families are my favorite: the courageous little families make their way to our country from every corner of the globe.  I have never worked with one that wasn’t thrilled and grateful to be here and wanting so much to be part of the community.  But it’s scary: language barriers, confusion over customs, transportation problems–they are frightening and discouraging for anyone.  Teaching the families about the holidays and some of the different ones everyone shares is a wonderful experience.  We help the kids make small crafts and gifts for their parents, take the family to see the lights or a concert.   Check with your local Catholic Refugee Services for placement suggestions.

 

4. Try the Epic Tour of Lights:

This needs to only cost you a gallon of gas.  Everyone in the family maps out their favorite lit-up houses for the holidays.  Plug ‘em into your iPhone or make a little map.  Pass out the cocoa and get the car started.  Try LightMuse or ChristmasLightFinder to get you started. Locals here along the Wasatch Front, there’s an incredible list that’s either free as a drive-by (F) or nominal cost ($):

 

5.  Japanese Sky Lanterns & New Year’s Eve Wishes:

My favorite of our new traditions.  Japanese sky lanterns are inexpensive and heart-stoppingly beautiful.  Just before midnight, we take our lantern and write a wish for the upcoming year on one side, and a worry from the year we’re leaving on the other side.  As the clock turns 12, we send our lanterns into the sky, carrying our wishes to the heavens as our worries burn away with the paper.  I’ve found inexpensive sky lanterns in bulk here.  (Editor’s note: this is very important: many municipalities will have their own laws about the use of these lanterns. Please check first, and make sure you use a clear space with an open skyline to set your lanterns into the sky.)

Five Minute Halloween Crafting – Corn Critters

Hold on to your corn husks! While you’re finishing off the last of the summer corn on the cob, save the husks for the Todd’s most clever new Halloween delight- Corn Critters. Our eight-year-old Zoe and the Todd show you how.

 

Five Minute Halloween Crafting – Corn Critters

You’ll need:

  • A glue gun
  • Craft “googly eyes”
  • Corn husks, spread flat with leaves radiating out to dry in the sun.

Admittedly, Zoe was more interested in eating the corn, but she gave her father the thumbs-up, so that’s participation. Sort of.

After mere minutes of easy crafting (and in my case, hot glue gun burns) viola! Your most clever new Halloween/Harvest decor – Corn Critters!

5 Fun Ideas For New Halloween Family Traditions

5 Fun Ideas For New Halloween Family Traditions. The importance of developing traditions together as a family has really hit me again since Zoe (our tempestuous 8-year-old) started questioning our Halloween quirks and oddities.

“Why do we have a Halloween tree?  Jane doesn’t have a Halloween tree.”

“Adam and Peter across the street already haaaaave their pumpkins!  When do we get oooouuuurs?”

I forgot how important these moments were in cementing us as a family–how excited Zachie and MacLean still got even as surly teenagers when we started dragging out the fall wreaths.

If you didn’t have a lot of tradition growing up, or maybe you’re in a new relationship and want to begin to create your own, here’s some ideas to get you started:

(Editor’s note: looking for some new and quirky Halloween events along the Wasatch Front? Find them here.)

 

5 Fun Ideas For New Halloween Family Traditions

1. The Halloween Tree.

The Todd and I scout relentlessly for just the right tree branch to create our Halloween tree.  Plop it in a bucket of sand or Quick-Mix cement and you’re ready to decorate.  I found the perfect one from a hillside fire by our home – half-burned, eerie, awesome.  The kids create paper bats and spiders, and we string it with Dollar Store cobwebs and crows.  Throw on some purple and orange lights and viola! (If you’d like any of the items you see on our trees, you can find them here.)

2.  The Pumpkin Patch.

Yes, I know you can get pumpkins cheaper and faster from the just outside the grocery store.  But do not underestimate to sheer Awesome of taking the kids out to a farm where they pick their own…play with goats…get covered in dirt and hay…there’s really nothing better.  There’s an excellent, comprehensive list of Pumpkin Patches from all over the country as well.

3. The First Fire Of Fall.

HUGE around the Collard house and we often cave before it’s really, truly chilly.  We’re lucky to have a fire pit in the back yard, but a fireplace inside works just as well.  You need to have a good, chilly night, popcorn, apples and scary stories.  We try to make it on a weekend so we can all sleep around the fire that night.

5.  Visit A Creepy Old Graveyard For Some Tombstone Rubbings.

We’re lucky to live by the historic Salt Lake City Cemetery, home of the uber-scary Emo’s Grave (say his name three times and he comes out and chases you around his tomb.)  Take some paper and pencils to make rubbings of some of the beautiful old tombstones.  They make great decorations and the kids love to find “their” rubbings from years past.  As the twins get older, it’s been fun to spin stories about some of the tombstones there…what the people were like…what kind of lives did they lead?

5 Great Water Games For Kids

5 Great Water Games For Kids

5 Great Water Games For Kids. Mr. Thermometer is finally cracking 90, and the backyard hose will be constantly running until the first freeze of Fall. Splash pads are out of the question, as are the neighborhood pools. So our backyard’s desirability has a sudden urgency. So, when the allure of our cheesy above-ground pool (my sister Jenne calls it the “White Trash Oasis”) runs thin, I’m placating my kids with these ideas.

 

 

Five Great Water Games For Kids

  1. Water Balloon Toss. In pairs, begin facing each other with one water balloon. Each time the balloon is tossed and caught, the catcher takes one step backward. Pairs can see how far apart they get. When the water balloon is dropped, grab another one and try again.
  2. Sponge Pass. Everyone sits down in a line facing forward. At one end is a bucket full of water with a large sponge. At the back of the line is an empty bucket. The object of the game is to get as much of the water from the front bucket to the back. Each player passes the sponge over their heads to the person next to them. When it reaches the back, the last person must squeeze the water into the bucket – hands still over his head – and pass the sponge back to the front.
  3. Duck, Duck, Splash. Just like the old school Duck, Duck, Goose, everyone begins by sitting in a circle. One person stands and walks around the circle tapping the shoulder or head of the other players and shrieks “duck!” Then that player gets to picks one person as goose- but this goose gets water poured from a cup poured over his head. The goose stands and chases the water offender one time around the circle. If she’s tagged, that person goes again. If the player reaches the empty spot and sits down before he gets tagged, the goose is passed the cup of water, which is refilled, and they become the new “it”.
  4. Cup Relay. Everyone stands in a line behind an empty bucket. A full bucket is placed further away. The first person in line runs to the full bucket with a cup in hand and attempts to get as much water into the empty bucket then passes the cup to the next person in line. You can also have two teams play to see who can get the most water in their empty bucket.
  5. Water Pinatas. Hang a large balloon full of water from a tree branch, blindfold the kids, and let them have at it. One child at a time with one stick! You might need to give the occasional helpful push to keep them from braining the other kids, but this one has been my kiddo’s favorite. The pinata isn’t pouring out candy, but the blast of water can feel like a water cannon, and it feels amazing.

 

Gentle Ways to Care for Yourself During the ‘New Normal’

Gentle Ways to Care for Yourself During the ‘New Normal’. Now that we’re adjusting – a little – to the reality that working from home, homeschooling, not working, missing friends, missing family, reconnecting via other ways, and thinking to ourselves “If my husband makes that noise one more time…” Wait. Is that last one just me? Never mind. But it all adds a slightly surreal quality to our navigation in the ‘New Normal.’ But it seems likely that you’re still the lynchpin that keeps everyone together. Are you feeling the strain?

 

I know, you’ve heard this before, but it’s true that if you don’t care for yourself, no one else will.  Then we either crash from exhaustion and stress or feel bitterly resentful that “we do everything!”  Here’s some simple principles to keep while battling a million different challenges.

Gentle Ways To Care For Yourself During Busy Times

Say no to anything that is not important to you

Laundry, phone calls with your mom, demanding girlfriends – this is not the time to be nice and “responsible.” Give yourself the permission to focus on what’s important. Getting the unessential responsibilities off your schedule will not only create some extra time and space, it will also lighten the burden you’re feeling to keep up with it.

 

Listen to your favorite music

I’m a little biased here, based on my career, but music can lift the spirit, calm the soul and cleanse anxiety.  Don’t underestimate the value of the right music to guide you through your day.

 

Ask for help

There’s nothing wrong with asking for help, and you’ll quickly learn that most people around you actually love to be asked! It makes them feel useful and important. What usually helps the most is to get help to do the normal things; cooking, shopping and regular everyday tasks. However, don’t underestimate how important the people in your life can be when it comes to feedback, motivation and supporting your self-confidence regarding the important work you’re doing.

 

Get enough sleep

I know you hear this so much that it’s likely really annoying at this point. But this old advice is not only essential when it comes to self-care, it is also absolutely essential when it comes to being able to do your best. Particularly important when it comes to exam periods and work stress. It’s easy to think that a few extra hours of work will do you more good, but it won’t. Sleep will.

 

Make a plan of everything that needs to be done

Instead of juggling all your to-do’s and must-remember’s, write them down on a piece of paper. Then make a plan of how you are going to manage everything before your deadline. Tackle the most stressful ones first. For me, that’s calling clients. I don’t know why, but I’ll avoid this extremely important element for as long as possible- while stressing about it the whole time. You may have to schedule a lot of tasks on certain days, and it may seem like too much to do, but at least you’ll know that everything will get done. Make sure you stick to the plan, every single day. Don’t fall for the temptation to start on tomorrow’s tasks today, trust that the plan will take you there, and enjoy some free time on the days when you finish your tasks early.

 

Write things down

I am of the belief that as adults, our brains fill up right to the top and stuff starts spilling over. This is why I can’t tie my shoelaces or remember how to work a doorbell. So I write everything down. On my phone, the back of my hand, it doesn’t matter. This way, I don’t have to carry the additional stress of remembering everything I need to remember.

 

Walk everywhere

You might be busy and think that every minute is valuable time to put into your work, but some extra minutes of walking might be a better way to spend some time. If you live close to where you’re going, it’s better to walk than to use your car. Not only will you enjoy a nice endorphin rush and the self-satisfaction of being all healthy, you also get some important fresh air and daylight. I have a few loops along the Bonneville Shoreline Trail (a wonderful series of trails and switchbacks only 10 minutes out of the city) that I plod along like a draft horse. I get so much thinking done!

 

Make sure you keep in touch with your friends

Just a few text messages, tweets or the occasional Skype session will make sure your friendships don’t suffer. You will feel much better when you focus on something else entirely, and it will prevent you from becoming a workaholic hermit. You don’t have to keep in touch with everybody, most people will understand that you’re having a busy period. Just make sure you stay in touch with the people that make you happy and inspired.

 

Make room for rest

This one’s important. Make sure that whenever you plan to rest – really rest. That means that you will have to make a conscious effort to push all work-related thoughts and worries away. It’s also important that you rest your mind as well as your body. 5 minutes of stillness is better than 30 minutes in front of the TV!

 

Surround yourself with inspiring photos

This can be a formal Vision Board if you have the room or the inclination, or simply photos that matter to you taped to a computer monitor, in a pretty frame or even a screen saver of all your favorite images from Pinterest- I love this option because I create a rotating series of inspiration boards to keep me going. 

 

Write a daily gratitude list

A daily gratitude list is really helpful to shift your focus and help you appreciate the situation. It doesn’t have to be lengthy, a few sentences will do. If you keep a gratitude journal, you can also look back on your previous entries whenever you need a little boost of happiness and motivation.

 

Wear your pretty clothes

Don’t save the cute new shirt for “something special,” you needing to feel good is THE “something special.” With your most powerful, wonderful and pretty clothes on, you’ll feel like a goddess for the rest of the day.

 

Take a hot bath

This is my go-to when it’s been a really rough day. I don’t know if I get any thinking done while I’m prone with a washcloth over my face and the bathroom door locked so my son can’t keep stumbling in. But after, I’m limp and relaxed enough to sleep, whether I want to or not. Plus, an evening bath may be the best way to relax because of this simple fact – you can’t take your work and your computer with you.

 

Accept a little clutter and mess

Some dust and a little dirt have never hurt anyone. Focus on what’s important to you, you can always clean up the mess later. (I would like to point out this bit of wisdom has a caveat: This only works if you can overlook it, like The Todd, I will only add the mess to my spiraling anxieties and it only gets worse. You know your comfort level.)

 

Do something silly

Most people would interpret this as an elaborate gag or practical joke. I simply learned a pile of really lame knock-knock jokes. They still crack everyone up, maybe simply because they are so stupid. (Editor’s note: there’s a big ol’ bunch of them right here.)

 

It sounds counterintuitive, but reach out and connect

There’s so many wonderful ways to connect with our neighbors and friends during times of uncertainty, find a list of ideas here.
