Resolution Writing

If you want to write resolutions with your guests then provide a sheet for them to do so:

But, give them some incentive:

Do I want to lose weight?
Do I want to exhibit kindness?
Shouldn’t I worry less?
Shouldn’t I forgive and forget those who have offended me?
Shall I set out to do more for others, rather than concentrate on myself?
Add some of your own ideas to the list.

What about the kids? Have them make booklets of their own. Use those Christmas cards for book covers and some computer paper folded. The kids can write things like:

Who will I be kind to? How can I help mommy this year? (etc.)

If you use some of these ideas, you will certainly have a very unique New Year’s Party. One your guests will appreciate and come away with positive “lang syne.”
