Our New Year’s Day tradition

Photo of my two kids, a birthday cake decorated like the northern hemisphere, and a plush snowman and globe watching.

Our New Year’s Eve / Day tradition is to make the world a birthday cake. While we eat it, we talk about the highlights of the past year and what we hope will transpire in the coming year.  We couldn’t fit 4.54 billion candles on it, so we made do with one.

My daughter is well-practiced in staging photos. My 4-year-old son puts on the geekiest awkward smile, so we told him to laugh. He responded by pantomiming raucous laughing by placing his fist to his mouth.
