Have you seen the meme floating around social media? It reads something along the lines of “2023 is days away and I am still processing 2020!”
One thing that these difficult years have taught me is that we can still celebrate – even in devastating times. Duluth Mom has pulled together a variety of ideas and resources to help you and yours celebrate New Year’s Eve!
All Church Family New Years’ Eve Party – Duluth Gospel Tabernacle
Noon Years Eve – Duluth Children’s Museum
Noon Years Eve Party – Playtime Palace

Outdoor activities– sledding, snowshoeing, skating, cross-country skiing, snow-tubing etc.
Dance party in your pjs – there are so many great music playlists and stories on Spotify! For example, search “Kids New Year’s Eve” and a few should pop up.
Go all out on the decorations – Balloons, party blowers, hats, glasses, party beads, party poppers etc. Check stores like Hucklebeary, Hobby Lobby, or Walmart.
