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.


In Brasstown, NC A LIVE OPOSSUM gets dropped.


In Mt. Olive, NC A PICKLE gets dropped at 7p.m.


In Raleigh NC, AN ACORN gets dropped.


In Charlotte, NC THE QUEEN CHARLOTTE CROWN gets dropped. Crown depicted in top portion of photo below.


Happy New Year!

Thanks to anyone who read, liked, or commented on any post found at Coach4aday in 2016.

Tomorrow I will begin daily posts on a new theme for 2017. Hope you will check back and find out what my focus is for the New Year!
