North Carolina-New Year’s Eve Traditions-December 31


North Carolina People, Places, and Things-December 31

I am the dad to five adult children. As they were growing up I attempted to remind them they were special and to implore them to learn something new. My goal was to do that daily.

In 2016 my goal is to learn something new daily on the people, places, and things that make North Carolina special. Everyday this year I did a post on what I have learned new.

Well today finishes up a year blogging about North Carolina but also completes three years of blogging on a daily basis.

In 2014 it was the Beer of the Day-I drank a different beer each day-365 different beers in one year with a small review of each one-link below.

In 2015 I wrote about A friend of a friend. Each day I profiled one of my friends and someone that was connected to them. Recap below.

In 2016 I have written 366 (leap year) posts on something new I learned about North Carolina. To some people that calls for a celebration. Well in North Carolina on New Year’s Eve there are quite a number of strange traditions involving dropping all sorts of objects to the ground to bring in the New Year.

The North Carolina New Eve’s list includes:

In Eastover, NC A WOODEN FLEA gets dropped.
