New Year's Quirks

Thursday, January 2, 2014
Happy New Year, darlings! Today is my first day back to normality after the festivities. How about you? Are you enjoying the rest of the week still blissfully on vacation or are you getting ready to dive into work?

If you need a bit of easing into the cold January, you should check out those cool little traditions Kinfolk wrote about. The team asked a few families from around the world to share their quirks and rituals for a happy New Year. In Sri Lanka for example, Juliet always eats curry with rice on New Year's day as it’s believed to entice bad spirits out of their bodies. My favourite is Joanna’s Korean tradition of spending the first day of the year with the whole family eating dumpling soup, playing yutnori and chatting away. Balazs and I also have a little tradition that we started when I met Balazs in Budapest all those years ago. Ever since our first New Year together, Balazs hunts down a little porcelain piglet to give me on New Year's Eve, as it brings good luck for the upcoming year. Do you have any of those little New Year's traditions that you believe in?

So happy to be back to regular schedule! Missed you:) xoxo

P.S: Two more posts are coming up today!

I'm very happy you are back. I missed reading your posts each morning and I found myself checking the blog for update knowing that you will be back today. Yes, for the past 15 years, we try to spend the New Year's Eve with my father eating pancakes all day long. Jill
