Happy New Year, Everyone! Glad to see that you all found your way back to the Everything Summer Camp Blog! Today is for wringing out the old and ringing in the new. Here we stand, 2014 behind us and an entire, fresh year ahead, just waiting to be explored! From everyone here at Everything Summer Camp, we hope your New Year’s Eve party left nothing to be desired and that you’re having a wonderful start to 2015! New Year’s Day is an interesting holiday since there are no real traditions set in place for “common” celebration. All the typical traditions for celebrating the new year were already enjoyed the night before! So what do people do on a holiday like New Year’s Day?
Well, it’s often made into more or less of a lazy day. Of course, there are some people who get together with extended family, watch the football game on TV, and prepare big meals. But a good number of people do absolutely NOTHING! And when I say ‘nothing’ I mean NOT a THING! It can be nice, enjoying a day in that fashion.
Lots of people take New Year’s Day as a day when it’s okay to stay in your bathrobe until after noon, when everyone in your house takes a mid-afternoon nap, and snacking on treats and junk food is more or less acceptable all throughout your waking hours. In other words, New Year’s Day typically becomes a much needed break from this always-hectic season!
So, kids, New Year’s Day isn’t necessarily the most fun of holidays, but it’s typically one of the most relaxed ones. Enjoy it. And enjoy the last of your days off before winter break is over. Happy New Year once again and, as always, thanks for reading.
