Our friends ended up backing out, so it was just the family on NYE.
My DH didn't feel like making the irish coffees, so, we passed on that.
I was going to cook some seafood, but, I was tired, too, so he picked up pizza.
Kids didn't make it to midnight.
Hubby and I barely did. We didn't even bother watching the ball drop. lol. We're so old and boring.
On the 1st, we did have some irish coffee and wonderful seafood, though. Nom.
Oh, and my sister commented about my lack of turkey cooking on thanksgiving, I delicately hinted that, if she wanted it, she could feel free to cook it, she's all 'sure'. We'll see how that works out.
Oh, thank you all for the answers! It's so interesting and different to my New Year. In my town it's a big feast with all-round celebration (not parade or smth like this but many hand-made toys fairs, sales everywere and garlanded public transport). People like me and older prefer to spend this evening in the bosom of their's family; younger conversely try to go somewere with a noisy crew. But maybe everybody cooks as much different food as he/she is able to afford. And then you eat this salads and chicken all next week. It's very exhausting.
I'm a traditional person, so for Christmas dinner I had roast turkey with sage and onion stuffing and cranberry sauce. Followed by good old fashioned Christmas pudding. I think its important to maintain our culture as its a part of our identity and will ensure these events we celebrate such as Christmas will be maintained for future generations.
I had a special dish for the lunch in that very special day.
I had lobster fry with green chilli souce and chicken bergar and green salad.
