Happy New Year
There are many top 10 lists out there that will tell you about the best New Year’s Eve parties in your city, the best cities to toast the new year and the best places to be at 11.59 pm on Dec 31 2013. Yet, not many of us actually get to go to these parties. The fact is, most of us would rather spend New Year’s Eve in the company of our closest friends and family and ring in the new year in our own special way, even if it doesn’t make headlines.
Here are a few ideas to make your New Year’s celebrations more memorable and wholesome:
Take a hike for good health: Why not kick off the new year’s eve party with a nature hike in your city? Gather your friends and family and head out to a trail where you can spend the day enjoying the outdoors together? Many state parks offer New Year’s Day or First Day Hike programs, so if you can’t make it on New Year’s eve, you could join one of these First Day Hikes in your state.
Try something new: There’s something or the other we’ve all been putting off for a while. It could be learning a new language or improving your golf swing, taking that dance lesson or joining that book club. Why not start off the new year on the right note by signing up for a class or club? After all, it is a new year. Get together with a few of your friends and try something new on Dec 31st.
Lend a hand: The holidays are a great time to think of those less fortunate. Donating to charity is one thing, but giving your time has its own value. Volunteering for a cause you care about has many benefits. It boosts your self esteem, keeps depression at bay, looks good on your resume and helps you build relationships with other like-minded people. If you and your friends have always been talking about doing something for the bigger good, now is a great time to start. Whether it’s helping out at the homeless shelter or planting trees, it’s a wonderful way to give your new year a meaningful start.
New Year’s Eve parties last a few hours but the impact of each of these ideas could extend far beyond. So, as you’re planning your party this year, think about how you can make your celebrations more memorable. Our selection of free New Year’s eCards and printable cards are great for wishing your friends and family and to invite them to your party. Don’t forget to add a little reminder about the special new idea you’ve decided to take up this year.

No hidden cost: Besides being easy, did we mention ecards are free? No matter how many cards you send, you don’t have to pay a dime. It’s not a free trial period where we start charging you after you’ve sent the first 5 cards. No. It really costs you nothing to send ecards to as many people as you like. You won’t have to register or answer annoying password questions to send your free Christmas ecards.
Cards you can hold: Some people like to hold Christmas cards in their hands. For them, you could create printable cards. These are cards you can personalize and print at home. Simply choose the way you want the card’s front and back to look, add stickers, symbols, your personal note etc and print it out. You could even print out color-in cards that kids will love to fill in with colors of their choice. These are especially great for grandparents who usually love anything their grandkids put their fingerprints on! Printable cards are free too, all you need is paper and a printer handy.
Merry X’mas Mother Earth: Free ecards are a great way to go easy on the planet. Imagine the amount of paper you’re saving by not buying greeting cards, envelopes and stamps. And what better time than Christmas to give the planet the gift of a little consideration?
