We had no desire to stay awake till 12 midnight to ring in the New Year, so we opted for the convenient 6 PM German New Year time. John & Angelika prepared a delicious Tapas Menu for dinner. And for a festive drink naturally they chose Feuerzangenbowle. This does not seem to be an appropriate tradition for our household, I think the cats may interfere with disastrous consequences.
Thanks John & Anglika for this celebration.
