While I am all about celebrating the passing of an old year and the entrance of a new one, I am not so much about needing to be awake at the exact moment this change occurs. As a result, we usually opt to stay in and make our own fun and go to bed when we want to.
We have been saving the wax from the bottom of candles that are all used up. We like to buy the candles that come in glass containers and then repurpose the containers into something fun. So we found ourselves, on new year's eve, with lots of wax, many glass containers, and some wicks that I purchased earlier in the day for $1.88.
