Fun and Creative Ways to Ring In 2022 at Home with Your Family on New Year’s Eve
Count Down to 2022 in Style with These Cool Ideas for December 31st
Not a fan of overpriced New Year’s Eve specials? Perhaps, you’re still not ready to swim through massive crowds with the coronavirus pandemic still very much around. You’re probably planning to spend New Year’s Eve on December 31st at home.
To help you out, Goodwill Car Donations has come up with a list of fun and creative ways to say goodbye to 2021 from the comfort of your home. These ideas will no doubt help you count down to 2022 in style.
- Prepare a “lucky” New Year’s Eve dinner.
One of the best things about staying home for New Year’s Eve is that you can save a big chunk of money by skipping that expensive dinner with your loved ones in a jam-packed restaurant. Instead, you can cook delicious meals at home for the enjoyment of your whole family.
This shouldn’t be an ordinary dinner though. Add some twist to it by incorporating lucky New Year’s traditions as you plan the menu. Chinese dishes like soup dumplings and noodles are believed to bring prosperity and long life, respectively, while Southern American classics like savory collard greens and black-eyed peas represent good fortune.
- Don your fanciest get-up.
Just because you’re not going out doesn’t mean you can’t dress up at home. There’s no reason not to dress fancy on the final day of 2021, especially if this has become a tradition for you since you started attending New Year’s Eve parties way, way back. Besides, if you have guests around, you wouldn’t want to be caught with your jammies, would you?
- Set up a virtual toast with your friends.
Thanks to Zoom, Google Meet, and other video-communication online services, you can now be with the people who matter to you virtually on New Year’s Eve. Invite them for a video conference. As you greet each other, offer a toast for all the wonderful moments that happened to you all in 2021.
- Have an outdoor countdown.
There’s no better way to count down the last few minutes of 2021 than by having your favorite people doing it with you just outside your home. Make sure to build a bonfire or use a fire pit to stay toasty. You can have some upbeat songs playing in the background. Oh, and don’t forget to bring out the confetti poppers before the clock strikes 12!
- List down your resolutions.
Making your New Year’s resolutions is a perfect activity that you and your family can enjoy doing before midnight. Have everyone recite their resolutions and explain why they chose such goals. You can even turn it into a fun activity by asking each member to create an inspirational mantra for their resolutions.
- Turn your Christmas tree into a New Year’s tree.
Do you still have your Christmas tree up? Great! Don’t take it down just yet. Remove all the ornaments and replace them with sticky notes of your resolutions. Now you have your New Year’s tree!
