Sure I won't be out dancing to live music or toasting in 2014 under a tent in Germany or Bosnia. But I will be hanging out with a group of funny, loud people who are going to get more and more out of control as the evening goes on.
I'm hoping to celebrate with my kids in a way that works out better than last year's epic fail. Spoiler alert: if you give sugary mocktails and noisemakers to eight toddlers, no amount of champagne will make your night turn out alright.
I've rounded up 10 ways to ring in the new year with kids. I hope they inspire you to celebrate, family style!
