Every year, towns across the United State celebrate a variety of end-of-the-year traditions. The biggest New Year’s tradition is that of the giant ball dropping in Times Square in New York City.

But what do we do here?

New York's giant ball-drop started in 1907 as the city rang in 1908. There were only two years when the ball didn’t  drop because of World War II -- 1942 and 1943. This was called "wartime blackouts."  Every year I make sure that a TV is on so I can watch the ball drop.

Other towns have other New Year's Eve traditions -- Seattle, for example, lights up the Space Needle at midnight. What a sight! Seems cooler than the ball dropping. It really should be televised.

What about us, though? Does the Yakima Valley or Tri-Cities have a New Year’s tradition? Does your family have any? Help me out! What New Year's tradition could we start in the Yakima Valley?
