Here at StratMg, we’re finding ways to celebrate the New Year with friends and family despite the lingering pandemic.
I searched for a variety of fun tips and selected these three to share with you, our business friends and readers.
Did you know that watching a ball drop to mark time goes back to at least 1833?
Back then, at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich England, a “time ball” would drop every day at 1pm. This daily occurrence allowed ship navigators to set their chronometers, a vital instrument of navigation.
It seems like now watching the ball – or other object – drop on New Year’s Eve helps us set our time pieces, too. Individually and as groups, we mark the year’s passage with a combination of solemnity and play.
With that in mind, here are 3 ideas for a fun New Year’s gathering from our family to yours!
What other ways do you celebrate the New Year? Ringing bells? Blowing horns? A kiss? Maybe you sleep through the midnight hour and greet the new year at dawn.
However and wherever you find yourself in the New Year, may it bring you joy! Tweet us your ideas for a fun start to the New Year!
