New Years Eve 2020 and New Years Day 2021 are going to be very quiet this year, I'm afraid. This is the year for a family-focused celebration, for sure. We've pulled together some online New Years Eve and New Years Day events plus listed all kinds of ideas for celebrating at home, from a balloon countdown to New Years crafts. Enjoy sparkling cider and champagne and some yummy treats, play games, and share hugs and wishes for a brighter and healthier 2021.
