New Years Tradition

31 Dec

There’s a yearly tradition that we do here at the Hotel Thompson that I thought I would share.  It’s nothing difficult, really simple if you will.  Mom/dad have done this for years and as they say, “If it ain’t broke – don’t fix it!”  I thought I would share with my friends here in blogville because one can never have too much of good luck, right?

On the 31st of December before midnight, place money outside on your porch.  It can be a loose bill, change, or in an envelope.  This stays on your front porch.  Before midnight, everyone goes outside of the house.

At midnight, you open the front door and throw the money in over the threshold.  This should be the first thing that crosses your door.  This represents money coming into your home for the new year.  Remember, you don’t step into the home until after the money goes in.

I’m not sure where mom/dad got this from but they have been doing it forever.  I mean heck, we’ll take all of the help from everywhere we can, right?  Happy money tossing tonight my friends 🙂

      It’s always worked for mom/dad. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it – well that’s what they say – snorticles. Happy New Year my friend. XOXO – Bacon

    Brother that’s a super cool tradition. I will do that too tonight ( when I can find money in my crib). We only telling fortunes by the shapes made by molten lead dropped into cold water (or we set my crib on fire).

    Interesting tradition but Mom says we’ll give it a try (I’m betting she’s sound asleep and snoring at midnight but we’ll see!!!). HAPPY NEW YEAR BACON!

    Nice. We have a tradition where a dark stranger knocks on the door with a piece of coal. And also you open the front and back doors to let the old year in and the new year out.

    We’ve never heard of that tradition before and Mom said she hasn’t either. However, it sounds great! Starting the year on a positive note is the best thing ever! Is it okay if we throw some catnip in, too?

    Oh my… going outside at midnight on New Years Eve is so dangerous (puts little squirrel helmet on). I’ll have to duck and cover…. and find some money!

      You got that right! My humans are getting old. They are taking a nap before midnight. Rolls piggy eyes – they’re amateurs. XOXO – Bacon

    That sounds so much better than our tradition of choking down creamed herring at Midnite for a prosperous healthy New Year.. 😛
