One of my family’s favorite New Year’s Eve traditions is to run around the block with our suitcases at midnight. It might confuse the neighbors, but it’s supposed to bring you good travel luck in the new year.
At ParentsTogether, we love helping families connect and build new traditions. This New Year’s Eve, gather the family together and ask these questions. It’s a great way to bond as a family, reminisce about 2017, and get excited for what’s to come in 2018. The answers may surprise you!

Happy New Year, from our ParentsTogether family to yours!
