Ready for Resolutions

Before you get ready to count down to the New Year, it's a good idea to sit down and write out your resolutions for the New Year. A brand new year means a fresh new start, and it's a good time to reflect on what you've accomplished in the last year, and what you hope to do in the New Year. Here are some resolution suggestions!

  • Eat healthier
  • Exercise
  • Pursue your hobby
  • Volunteer for a cause you  feel passionate about
  • Keep in touch with friends and relatives more often
  • Spend more time studying/aim for higher grades at school

Party Planning

For lots of people it's traditional to go to (or throw) formal parties with music and dancing and to count down to midnight together! it's a great opportunity to dress up and welcome the New Year with friends and family. If you're going to or hosting a party, you'll need: 

  • a kickin' playlist
  • non-alcoholic bubbles (like Martinelli's Sparkling Apple Juice) to toast at midnight
  • Sparklers
  • A TV or radio tuned to a countdown, so you can share the experience with lots of people!

Midnight Madness

New Year's Eve is all about the build-up to midnight, when the New Year officially kicks in, so make sure when the clock is counting down to midnight that you're in a room with people you love.

And if there's someone in your line of vision you've had your eye on all year, remember it's traditional to kiss someone on New Year's at midnight!
