New Year's Eve, the day where many of us gather with our family and friends to say goodbye to the old year and welcome the new one with sparkles and lots of cheer.
Ever since I was a little girl, this was one of my favorite celebrations. One of the reasons why is because my family had a tradition of ringing in the new year wearing a brand-new outfit. Growing up we didn't have much, so this tradition was always very special. Of course there were years when we didn't have enough money to buy new outfits, but my mom always managed to for us to have a little something. Whether that was a new hair clip for me or a simple T-shirt for my brothers, she always wanted us to at least have something that we'd never used before to welcome the new year. That was always special to me.
