New Years at Web Holidayshttp://www.web-holidays.com/newyear/
Review by Debbie Mazo
In Holland, the Dutch consume a hot meal on New Year's Eve with spicy warm wine to "eat out the old year and eat in the new". On the streets of Brazil, a late meal is served after midnight and usually includes lentils as a symbol of good luck. Wherever you live, New Years at Web Holidays will help you look forward to the future as you cherish special moments with friends and family.
Planning on hosting a New Year's Eve bash? New Years at Web Holidays is here to the rescue with plenty of innovative decorating ideas. For this year's holiday décor, try a universal theme of black and white. Spruce up your serving table by layering white and black tablecloths. Or, make large bows out of white netting and decorate with black curly ribbon and red roses.
You can mark the New Year along with other nations of the world by serving some of the site's international recipes, like St. Basil's Bread. Traditionally baked with small treasures inside like trinkets and coins, this sweet dough bread is a New Year's tradition in many Greek households. Or, stir up another New Year's favorite like Borracho Soup. This hearty dish, also called Drunken Soup, is filled to the brim with ingredients like sliced mushrooms, thinly sliced sausage, and a quart of beer.
If one of your New Year's resolutions is to get crafty, there's no time like the present. Click on Crafts and Activities, and follow easy directions for creating homegrown noise making shakers and streamer ribbons. With everything from family craft projects to global cooking selections, it's hard to do better then New Years at Web Holidays.
