Last New Year weekend was extra special and meaningful in the sense that most of us were relieved 2020 was finally over and a new year has arrived. I dunno with you but the way I saw it, it felt like we were entering a new era and we were hopeful about everything. We were glad we were still alive when 2020 ended which meant we have survived the pandemic (so far).
In our family, we rang in 2021 as simply and as happily as we could. We also made sure baby NJ would have a great time by dressing her up and explaining to her about the firecrackers and the firework displays, haha. She got scared with the loud sounds from the firecrackers at first but enjoyed it eventually. For her own safety, we took her inside the house after a minute of watching outside because we have started to smell smoke in the air.
