Happy New Year everyone!

After this lovely New Year's Eve dinner, it was just time for us to count down from 10 and then light up the sparklers. Filipinos have this tradition where you just make noise as loud as you can for a minute when the new year rolls around, and that's just what we did! We also have the tradition where you jump up and down three times to get taller. They made me jump 20 times (I'm just around 5ft!)

 Since it wasn't too cold, we got a blanket and laid it out on the field in front of our house, got our laptop and listened to "New Year's Eve" by Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (check that out here) while looking at the pretty stars. We then proceeded to dance to 99 Red Balloons by Goldfinger.

Of course, it eventually got too cold for comfort so we went back inside our house to sit in front of the fire, watching A Christmas Carol.

And that's how I spent my New Year's Eve. Let me know how you spent yours. :)
