Some years we have done it up with quite a lot of fanfare -- one year, we spent it at the New Year's concert by the Philadelphia Orchestra (a formal affair), followed by a night's stay at the city's Four Seasons Hotel and a brunch in the City with Mummers.
Another year, we were aboard a cruise ship in the Caribbean, and unwisely made plans for an early excursion to the Emerald Falls in Dominica. They were gorgeous ... and we were not, having had only an hour's sleep after a full night's revelry.
But we have no plans this year. Secretly, I hope we'll be asked to babysit -- we love spending time with our grandbaby and "the kids". Whatever you do, have fun!
...And Happy New Year!
