Happy New Year!

Wow, it is almost time to head on back to school on Wednesday and get into a routine. I am ready for both. Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy being lazy and not having to get up at 5:00 am to get ready for work. I hope everyone has a fabulous New Year and that everyone is safe! 

I am from a small town called Cherryville, North Carolina. Our town has New Year shooters that begin at 12 midnight on January 1 and go around to houses and fire their muskets. It is a German custom that our ancesters continued to do in this small town. It is definitely a LOUD night and believe me, you can hear the shooters all through the night and the next day. I used to enjoy going to watch and following the shooters with my friends. We haven't followed them in quite a while...probably won't go this year either, but it is something that I thought I would share. Click below the picture if you want to learn some more about it. 




Happy New Year!
