Jesse Tinsley: A Good Way to Welcome New Year

Jesse Tinsley: My family had a great time at First Night in Spokane. For the second year in a row we got a hotel room in town so we could hit the sack right after midnight fireworks. We had our two small children so the highlights for us are what fascinated them, including the medieval knights whacking each other with sticks, Kung Fu demonstrations, eating out, ice carvings (which they lit on fire with various flammable liquids) and participating in contra dancing.

DFO: I rang in the New Year quietly, by running to the store for Sudafed to help relieve the horrible head cold my son gave my wife over the holidays. She was in bed by midnight. I was on the computer. My daughter was watching a video. When I noticed it was midnight, I kissed Amy Dearest and wished her a Happy New York.

Question: How did you welcome in the New Year?
