Ringing in the New Year

Celebrating the start of a new year is a fun family tradition, but it happens awfully late at night for little ones. PBS Parents has some great tips for including kids in the celebration if staying up until midnight doesn't work for your family. 

You could countdown to the "Noon Year" and do the whole celebration at midday.  Or learn about New Year's Eve traditions around the world, and celebrate as the clock strikes midnight in different countries- It's always midnight somewhere!
