Every year, I throw a large party at my home. I essentially invite everyone I know over and serve food from sunrise to evening. Leading up to the new year, I spend all my available time preparing food and cleaning my house. When I talk about my New Years philosophy, many people seem to really like it.
Essentially, you should start the year like you want the entire year to go. You should have a clean home. You should fill your home with food. You should share with the people you love. Shape your new year.
