When we moved to Vancouver Island, friends introduced us to the Newfie New Year’s Eve party which consists of five easy steps.
- Gather at a central location (usually a friend’s house) at 5 pm,
- Enjoy appetizers and cocktails at 5:15 pm,
- Dine at 6 pm,
- Toasts, hugs, kisses, cheers, general hooting and hollering at 7:30 pm.
- Be home tucked safely in bed by 9 pm.
Why the festivities at 7:30 pm?
Why, because it’s midnight in Newfoundland.
!!!HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
