IT’S ALMOST 2015!

New Year’s Eve is a wonderful time to celebrate and reflect on the previous year, as well as to look forward to the exciting possibilities of the upcoming 365 days!
People choose to celebrate this holiday in many ways. One of the most the notable is witnessing the “dropping of the ball” in New York’s Time Square. Dating back to 1907, this nostalgic tradition has averaged over 1 million spectators each year in person, and over 1 billion TV viewers! Here in Sarasota we drop a pineapple, and in other parts of the country the items used to ring in the New Year include a liberty bell replica (Pennsylvania), a pickle (North Carolina), a guitar (Tennessee), and a cheese wedge (Wisconsin). For other fun traditions check out Wikipedia.
In addition to our Pineapple drop, we have many wonderful ways to celebrate New Year’s Eve. Check out the following links we found to help you plan your night:
