New Year’s Eve is also a great time to get one last look at the amazing Christmas lights your neighbors have put up, so a drive around town in the early evening can be a great way to celebrate with your little ones before their bedtime. You can also make your own celebration by heading to any local restaurant and have a nice dinner out while supporting your neighbors. Just remember to check hours as some may close early on New Year’s Eve.

Above all, have a safe, happy and prosperous New Year from all of us at LewisTalk!
