  • How do you bring in the New Year? Any special family traditions?
    If anyone says that true and natural water is not necessary for baptism and thus twists into some metaphor the words of our Lord Jesus Christ" Unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Spirit" (Jn 3:5) let him be anathema.

    Singing Te Deum in church on the 31st. You get a plenary indulgence for doing so.
    Alas I have no traditional church near me, so the indulgence shall not be mine.

    We usually attend the Holy Mass since the Feast of Mary, Mother of God is a Holy Day of Obligation in the US.

  • Nothing too special.  Usually some relatives come over, we play games until midnight, do the ten second countdown, and drink some champagne.

    On New Year's Day, we go to Mass, and have pork of some kind for dinner.

  • I sleep the new year in, unless i'm woken by fireworks, then I roll over and go back to sleep. It's just another sleep for me. Oh! before we go to bed we do a bit of this: :alcohol:

  • Does anyone make resolutions?

    We do and also eat grapes at midnight! 12 grapes for 12 wishes.  :smile:

    I am happy to report that I kept most of my resolutions for 2013, except for one or two.

    Traditional Catholics should call the first of the year the feast of the circumcision of Our Lord as it was traditionally called.

    As a child, my parents would host a neighborhood cocktail party.  We children would go to bed early then be woken up around 11:30.  We'd join the adults to watch the ball come down in Times Square on TV, then run to the door and bang pots and pans with spoons.  A WWII veteran neighbor would always fire off 21 shots to honor his buddies who were killed in the Philippines.  We ate mini-hot dogs in cocktail sauce, chips with onion and clam dip, cheese and Ritz crackers, pickled herring in cream sauce.  The children had cranberry juice and a tiny sip of champaign, after which time we went back to bed.  The usual New Years Day dinner was roast beef, mashed potatoes and gravy, string beans, creamed baby onions, French bread and butter with vanilla ice cream for dessert.  I do not recall going to Mass, so I do not think we went.  
    Nowadays, my parents go to bed their usual 9:30.  Any 'celebration' is done prior to then.  The novus ordo churches in this area do not seem to observe any Holy Day of Obligation on January 1.  There is none but the usual 9:30 am daily mass listed in my parents' n.o. bulletin. I have no special plans this year. I'll have to head directly for home after Mass (SSPX) as it is back to work at 6:30 am on Jan. 2.  
     St. Francis Xavier threw a Crucifix into the sea, at once calming the waves.  Upon reaching the shore, the Crucifix was returned to him by a crab with a curious cross pattern on its shell.

  • I have no plans this year. I'll probably do the same thing I've been doing the past few evenings, which is spinning wool while drinking wine. :farmer:

    A couple New Years ago I went to the greatest party ever. It was about 70 Catholics in one house- drinking, laughing and being merry. There was a certain condition to attend this party though. You had to come with a diddy to share- a song sung or played, a poem, or what have you. The "stage" was in the living room, and all night until about 3 am the stage stayed busy. My favorite was a group of young men who would get up and sing hearty, boisterous Irish songs, and in the next instant they'd be singing melancholy songs of fair maidens and unrequited love. Then ladies would get up and sing beautiful songs and play charming melodies. Every once in awhile the stage would pause and everyone would join in on a Christmas carol. What a fond memory. Catholics know how to throw a party.
    Religion clean and undefiled before God and the Father, is this: to visit the fatherless and widows in their tribulation: and to keep one's self unspotted from this world.

    That sounds like such an entertaining occupation.

    I have not attended to such a big Catholic party but perhaps one day I will host one. I would be delighted!

    Psalms 64-12-14



    "Thou shalt bless the crown of the year of thy goodness: and thy fields shall be filled with plenty. The beautiful places of the wilderness shall grow fat: and the hills shall be girded about with joy, The rams of the flock are clothed, and the vales shall abound with corn: they shall shout, yea they shall sing a hymn."

    Alas I have no traditional church near me, so the indulgence shall not be mine.


    Traditionally, on the 31st was prayed the "Parce Domine" twice then the "Miserere" (Psalm 50) before midnight in repentence for our faults and offences of the past year.  Then the Te Deum was prayed to thank God for his graces and protection.

    This is a good devotion to pray at home if your chapel isn't having Midnight Mass which was also a Catholic tradition.
